I found this post-it note at a campsite near Guerneville. I imagine it rode there attached to a yummy box of Hamburger Helper or similar, a child’s fondest wish finally becoming reality. Really, how does one thank someone for such a joy?
I found this on a family walk.
Found in a parking deck in late 2002. The text appears to be written on the back of an envelope When I read these words for the first time, I said out loud to no one in particular, “Well, aren’t we all?”
I found this in a used bookstore, between the pages of a 1970s edition of Henry James’ “The Ambassadors.”
I found this old photograph along with some others in the flea market. I was pretty sad to see someone throw away a photo with such character. These men lived only 60 years ago, and no one cared to keep this picture of them.
My sister found this.
Found this in a recycling bin near my home, and I cannot believe anyone would throw out such a perfect photo. The wood paneling, the shamed expression on the man’s face, the livid expression on the woman’s face, and then, the crowning touch: the rose. It’s fantastic.
This was one of many photocopied photos I found at a playground; this is my favorite.
Found on an exposed roll of film inside a Brownie camera at a Goodwill around 1975 or ’76.
Found on sidewalk.
