    I am so glad Kim made this great film about the “You’re Perfect” guy. Readers had been sending in photos of him and mentioning having seen him in the streets of Berkeley and I was wondering who he was!

    I saw him the other day for the first time, and he put a big smile on my face … as did Kim’s Video.

    OH! Thank you! I have been meaning to ask you to do something on this feller! He makes me so happy every time I see him. A beautiful reminder that being of service can take so many forms.

    Really glad I caught this video. I saw this post earlier in the month and the film told a lot more of the story. http://www.superherodesigns.com/journal/archives/002069.html
