Chairman Bao is a Shih Tzu. We travel a lot. I drive. He watches. We've logged at least 10,000 miles and he's never once said, Sweetheart, don't you think you should stop and ask someone?

Book Expo 2009

Bao and me and Sea Changes at the IBPA stand -- dreams do come true!
Anything is possible.
Book Expo (BEA) is vast. Hundreds of exhibtors, thousands of people,
millions of books. It's a spectacle rather than an experience, an
unscripted, three-day piece of indoor street theater with a cast of
thousands, all of whom are extras. It's not even about the books. It's
about itself.
We didn't see it all, but we saw a lot of it until my feet gave out.
And we got to meet Jane Wesman, whose epynomonous public relations
firm has made Sea Changes a success. We also met the guy who founded
Galley Cat, the publishing zine.
New York may be expensive and awful, but it's definitely where it's
at. Which is probably why it's New York.

Wow! Sounds like you are really enjoying this experience. I am so glad everything is working out well.

Bao in the stroller is so cute. He is definitely your 'baby'.
