Goodbye, New York: 30 days left

Goodbye Book Court, where I bought hundreds of dollars of books, some as gifts and many for myself. I've spent so many hours hanging out there, reading on the couches, poking through books about history and psychology and flipping through new fiction. And, lately, the children's section.

What is it about a neighborhood bookstore that rings so strongly of community? When we think about public spaces, libraries and bookstores are crucial to making a place feel like home to me.

And then further down Court Street, Cafe Pedlar. Last summer Chris watched Noah every Sunday morning so I could take my journal to this cafe, sit and think. Was I crazy to quit my job? What was my purpose in life? What was the point of me?

This is the place I read an amazing piece of writing that called me to start Plucky. It's also where Noah and I hung out, eating muffins and spotting dogs last summer. I'm excited to find a new place in Berkeley for people watching and maybe even Stumptown.
