For those of you who live in the Bay Area, check out Castle in the Air on fourth street in Berkeley. Aside from being just plain awesome, it’s also where I get all of my sealing wax and seals.
I find inspiration in the oddest places. For example, I got this lovely little note from the folks behind Gocco*Boom in the 2009 paper swap:
