Hello Beautiful Person!
Great to hear from everyone I’ve been hearing from! I’ve decided that I like mass emails now; even if the communication is one way (which it tends to be, which in turn is only to be expected), I can rest assured that the people who should have access to a corner of my life have it!

Haw-Wen and I have just returned from a stupendous trek through the Annapurna region of Nepal, a mountainous and sparsely inhabited natural wonderland packing everything from glowing fields of mustard flowers to waterfalls-turned-icicle scultures, herds of domesticated goats caked in greenish burrs to teahouses atop 5400m mountain passes. I intend to tell you all about it in an email I compose soon (it seems like a somewhat daunting writing project to me right now … is that any way to think of an email? Well … to this many people, I’ve got to pay respect to the medium, and of course everyone’s time!). However, until then I have an assignment for you which will only take you a minute to complete. (Timely distraction ’tis.) I’d like you to do three things:

First, send me your current mailing address. If you usually stay in more than one place, please give all possible addresses and when you may be found where. If you complete this part, you just MIGHT receive something in the mail, SOMETIME.

Second, send me the name of one artist, band, or song that you’ve really been enjoying recently. New music is preferred, but if you’ve suddenly become hooked on an oldie, that’s great too. I’m interested to hear what music you have been exploring of late.
Third and finally, please describe to me one thing that you wish you had done or could do, but didn’t or can’t actually do. Alternatively, tell me about one thing you hate the fact that you do, but can’t stop doing. It doesn’t have to be ultra personal embarrassing disgusting or anything of the sort, whatever you choose.

Think you can handle it? I’ll be waiting for your captivating responses! And of course you will be waiting with bated breath (yeah right) for something from me! Can he deliver???
Take care! ä¿é‡ï¼
