gol #5: stationery haven

T.’s away for the weekend, camping on the Lost Coast with some friends.  We backpacked there a few years ago; it was one of our favorite trips.  Magical.  I’m supposed to be good and rest and take it easy after two weekends of traveling and an extra lengthy mensa cycle, but I was out most of the day and evening and here I am, awake past midnight. 🙂  I’m so sleepy, but being alone feels wonderful and incomplete at the same time.  Like I’m restless and need to do things…  I’ve been daydreaming a lot lately about running my own shop.  A shop filled with Korean design stationery, Shinzi Katoh stuff, and local artists’ paper goods.  I would be so giddy being surrounded by all that everyday.  And I’d have a corner called the letter writing corner where people can drink coffee or hot chocolate and munch on Peppero sticks while writing letters.  T. says I should find a business partner.  Someone who’s business minded and gifted in administrative tasks, because if I did it alone I may not even know (or care) if the business were losing money.  I love him.
