I'm not the man in motion I sometimes pretend to be. In fact, fairly homebound and glad of it, partially because I can be bad about doing all the planning necessary for a trip. I'm out-of-town today, working on a story. But before I left, my wife and I had an exchange that made me smile: She: Could you send me the address where you're staying? Me: I don't know where I'm staying. She: Well then, could you tell me what state you'll be in? Me: North Carolina.
