While most of my thoughts and ramblings can be found over here, I’m dedicating My Vanity Fair to commonplacing: a collection of all things learned and all things useful.  We’ll throw a little bit of beauty into the mix just to keep things interesting.

I’m typically an avid note keeper and list maker and while I’ve yet to fill a room with all my jottings, I think it’s mostly because I try to recycle stuff.  Inevitably all of those notes and lists and drawings end up in a green plastic bin to go the way of papermaking.  With any luck, I’ll get some of those ideas onto the blog before they get turned into someone else’s cardboard box.

This is a collection of what inspires me.  What inspires you?
