The last time I was in San Francisco, it was the 90's. I think I was 11 years old. I visited my dad for the summer when he was still living there. SF was his favorite city in the world right after Lake Tahoe. And before that summer visit, I was birthed there and we were on our way to NY soon after that. I don't know what took me so long to go back. I knew I wanted to see and try a lot of things. But with just one full day, I packed it in with a lot of walking, hours of calligraphy inspiration at the San Francisco Public Library, and a letterpress workshop. I look forward to being back next summer during the calligraphy conference in Sonoma.
