February 29th is an ephemeral ghost…A strange amazing day that comes only once every four years. For the rest of the time it does not ‘exist.’ In mundane terms, it marks a ‘leap’ in time, when the calendar is adjusted to make up for extra seconds accumulated over the preceding three years due to the rotation of the earth. A day of temporal tune up! But this day holds another secret — it contains one of those truly rare moments of delightful transience and light uncertainty that only exist on the razor edge of things, along a buzzing plane of quantum probability…A day of unlocked potential. Will you or won’t you? Should you or shouldn’t you? Use this day to do something daring, extraordinary and unlike yourself. Take a chance and shape a different pattern in your personal cloud of probability! — Vera Nazarian (Author)

Cool design! Sad to think that this will be one of the last Retro 51 designs, though 😦
It won’t be the last ones, not quite yet. We have a couple more Tornado Poppers and some exclusives yet to come 🙂
That’s great news! ::D
Thanks for the info, and best of luck!
Where can I get one online? I found one site but they are already sold out. I have never gotten one of your pens before but this one caught my eye, it is one of the coolest rollerball pens I have ever seen!
Please contact our customer service and they’ll help you out. http://retro51.com/e_contact.html
Eeek, it’s sold out everywhere. How may I purchase one?
By the way, as a ‘73 Berkner grad, I am greatly saddened that you are leaving us. Nevertheless, I wish you all the best. Now, if I could find this pen and the 2007-08 Cherry Blossom pen, life would be grand!
Many thanks for years of learning and fun,
