I'm glad you're writing again.

I love your writing.

I'd followed you on The Atlantic years ago when I was still in school. I read with relish and envy your trips to Thailand and China -- and vowed to try the Sukhamvit Soi Five Fried Chicken with my (then) roommate but never got around to it.

Years later -- after medical school, marriage, buying a house, turning into a grown-up basically, my old roommate and one of my best friends moving to China -- I still remembered those articles. I wondered how that restaurant you wrote about a few times on The Atlantic was doing. And I still hadn't made the fried chicken.

My old roommate graduated from B-school in Bejing a few weeks ago and is back in the US. And we're going to try that fried chicken on Friday. Looking for that recipe on line, I thought about your old writing and found this blog.

The moral of this story is this: People are reading what you write even though you will seldom get any immediate feedback or gratification. Your work has brought me some measure of joy, and I (selfishly) hope it continues for my sake. I'm sure I'm not alone in that.

Kiran, (and Nancy) thanks so much. I love writing and wish I could do more, but I simply don't have that much time to do it, right now. But it's reassuring to know that there are folks out there like you, who enjoy this little blog.

Seriously. Thanks. Means a lot.

Jarrett
