I got a small post card from my YLF friend Matt Isler.

What a great friend I have! Thanks Matt, and Mei Lan!
What is the last time I send a postcard to my friend? I tend to use electronic version, or the Internet more…

So I drawed a sentence on a piece of paper, and take a photo of it, and post it on this web page:
Matt is maybe my only friend in US military. We chatted a lot about how military worked (especially how to balance “obey” and freedom of soldiers), and his first hand experience in Iraq. It is so true that nothing is more useful to foster communication between two countries than having a good friend in another country.
Haha, it’s creative that u sent your thanks in the way of a combination, a electronic version of hand painted paper, which seems so interesting.
One reason I like your blog so much is that your posts always make me think. Sometimes they also make me smile. This one does both :-)
@Carroll, I am so blessed to have you and Jim as my friends, and you also play such an important role in my life, and is the closest “American family” for me. You helped me to understand a lot about America… Looking forward to seeing you in the bay area soon…
This post also put a big smile on my face for some reason :)
I agree with Michelle–“a electronic version of hand painted paper”, it’s a version of nowaday as well as a traditional. Perfect combination and fresh idea !
I’m Matt’s son Sam and I will show him your website.
I also like your website and my moms name is “Mai Lan” a lot of people mess it up.
