This postcard was written to my friend Matt last summer in response to a letter about the unexpected death of one his friends.
Hey Matt — I got your letter from mid-July. I’m sorry to hear about your friend Alex. I’m really sorry to hear that, and it sucks. I’m really glad to have you as a friend. Your creativity, work ethic, and ability to learn new skills and take on ever-larger projects keeps me inspired on days when I just feel really shitty.
I’m glad we’re both dads. I’m happy to know that if either of us isn’t here anymore, our kids will be. But I hope we both live to be let’s say a hundred years old while maintaining excellent health and financial resources.
Keep building stuff and having new ideas and being an excellent father and I’ll do the same.
