FOUND by Lauren L. underneath a U-Haul seat
Three years ago, I found two copies of this underneath a U-Haul seat while I was moving out of my freshmen dorms. It came with another sheet of paper with a digital image of a pixelated grim reaper that I can’t seem to find now. The U-Haul got towed that night (unrightfully, but thats another story) and I spent hours trying to find the tow yard on foot. I finally found the yard and was in the depths of despair after paying the City of Chicago a $300 fine when I found this. I just read it over and over and over and it made my night.
FOUND by Justin Tyler in Denver, Colorado
I found this in the back of a journal I was flipping threw in an ARC thrift store just outside of Denver. It blows my mind that this heart-to-heart letter sat unread and untouched for almost 30 years. It might have been a rough draft, but the journal I found it in had no other pages torn out that I could see and nothing else was written in it. Why it never made it to Lisa I guess is up for speculation. Thank you Jon, Now your letter was’ent written in vain.
FOUND by Juan in Washington, DC
Whoever created this obviously put a lot of time and emotion into creating just the right expression of love. Yet, there it was, on the street, neglected and forgotten. Love. So deep. So fleeting.
FOUND by Jennifer Norton in Las Vegas, Nevada
I found this walking on the strip in Las Vegas. It seems like there could be more pages to this, maybe before? I imagine “boo-Chie” is a woman who’s upset with her love. Maybe they were going to get married in Vegas, but then there were doubts after they lost tons of money gambling to pay off the trip. Late that very night, her love trying still to win back money downstairs in the casino, she wrote this note in her hotel room.
