I’m looking forward to August. I’ll be spending time in Cap Ferret, on France’s west coast; in Geneva, Switzerland; and in Saratoga Springs, in upstate New York.
I’ll enjoy showing my daughter a bit of Europe (including Geneva, the city where she was born) and having her get reacquainted with family members she sees too infrequently. She’s already insisting that one evening we have dinner at the Geneva outpost of Le Relais de l’Entrecôte.
And in Saratoga Springs I’ll be hanging at the track. My wife Joanne is the community relations manager of the New York Racing Association, which runs thoroughbred racing in New York State. For six weeks NYRA shifts its operations to Saratoga Springs. It’s an agreeable and relaxing place to hang out—at least it is for me, as I’m not the one working!
Barring any exciting developments in the world of contracts, I plan on maintaining radio silence during August. I could do with a break, and my thoughts are turning to deciding what comes next. But I’ll be checking my email routinely, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
