Hey Duce,

Just letting you know I've been enjoying reading your blog. Thanks for the comments you've posted on mine.

I don't have any particularly relevant thoughts about your blog posts at the moment.

Although I am confused. Why are you writing about this dancing girl? Do you know her somehow? Did you take all these pictures?

Hope to hear from you soon. Take care of yourself in the Promised Land.

much love,
