The Long Sleep

FOUND by Pam on Turk Street, San Francisco, California

I found this kind note this morning on my regular dog walking route; ten feet away from a raccoon that had been “sleeping” next to the curb for about three days. It’s kind of heartbreaking to think of this person first noticing the raccoon, then taking the time to write the note and, I assume, very quietly place the note under the wiper so as not to wake the tired beast.

FOUND by Kateri in Chicago, Illinois

Found on the sidewalk in my neighborhood in April of 2012. They didn’t show up on the scan, but the paper actually has dusty shoeprints on it from being walked over. It’s been posted on my refrigerator since then, but I’m moving and it has to go. I thought FOUND would make a nice home for this masterpiece of the strange.
