Ever since I realized that some of my readers might be very young, I decided not to write anything negative/pessimistic as I did in some of my personal blog. I feel the responsibility that teenagers should be presented a world as beautiful as depicted in postcards. Here, after a few days of delay, for this blog entry, I pick up two cards of Tahquamenon Falls I bought during the trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula last weekend. I think the cards are beautiful although the trip was not. I just don't have the mood to write on the many gorgeous cards I have received recently. Sorry.
The town where the Tahquamenon Falls are located is called Paradise. What a unique and blessing name! What an opportunity to send postcards with "Paradise" postmarks! I brought with me a dozen of postcards I was supposed to send to fellow postcrossers and bought tens of postcards over Mackinac Bridge, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and Tahquamenon Falls State Park. But I didn't mail any. It's probably the first trip I didn't send any postcards, not even to myself. Paradise is too beautiful to be a destination for new graduate students from China during fall break. May the young lives lost on their way to Paradise rest in peace.
