i received something special in my mailbox today and it was such a pleasant surprise from the usual stash of bills, junk mails and subscribed magazines that we normally get.

i got a handwritten card from my friend the millers.

other than wedding invitations and invitations cards – it has been a long time since i received a handwritten card. it is such a nice gesture don’t you think? if you ask me in a world full of everything, what do we all crave? a human touch.

josh and i still come from a time when we were trained to write as though we were writing to mr. president


i have made a simple decision as of yesterday. from now on, when i am with someone, i will not check my phone, i will not look at e-mails or read bloomberg news and i will devote my 110% attention on them.

i want to listen hard to what they say, not just listen but really listen to every word that they say. i want to stare deep into their eyes and feel a sense of what they are saying, without them even saying it explicitly.
