Hello my friend, I hope your week-end is relaxing and peaceful. Mine is full and busy with the boys, as usual. The knee is sloooowwwwwllllyyyy getting better.
Look what Mulan received in her facebook the other day…. She has not yet
responded, actually she does not know what to say, so I suggested we’d toss the ball to you, as it’s now your chair.
How’s the puppy?

You just have to love facebook. We used to be neighbors many years ago living on west 11th (was it??) across from that school. You lived with your sister Sunya and little brother Che, I lived with my sister Rachel and our mom, Sharon and my mom’s boyfriend, Norman . We used to play barbies and have many adventures…I wonder if you remember me?
I remember thinking how interesting your family was with an asian dad and dutch mom, now I am married to a Japanese man so I guess you folks set the standard!
I know this is a crazy question (if you even remember little blond Willow from next door) but when we moved to Lund and left Vancouver my mom sold a beloved family chair to your parents. It was green and had claw feet and was huge. If your parents still have it, tell them I would love to buy it back if they are ever wanting to let it go. I have never forgotten about it, lots of memories and have in fact been scouring antique stores in Vancouver looking for it-thinking it might be back in circulation. I hope that’s not too crazy for you!
I am living in Vancouver, are you? I am a social worker with two kids, 12 and 9, I am also an artist. I would love to find out how you and your family are doing.
Please be in touch!
