In response to my rather whiny tweet about how I’ll never be a writer as no one actually wants to read my posts — I received a flood of affirmation and for a lack of a better way to describe it, 加油!from friends and readers :) Among them was the loveliest note from J about the external vs. internal personas, and how those who know me personally would rather read my thoughts than look at pictures, as the life that’s lived is simply a manifestation of who I am inside.

Doesn’t that just make you want to sing the Mulan song?

Cheesy but true, she says. It’s always nice to know that the folks you love, respect and admire in real life don’t think that this wee blog here is a waste of time. Happy Friday friends :)
