A Plea for Understanding

This find came from a used book I purchased from Blue Cloud Books on Amazon. The paperback copy of “An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness” by Kay Redfield Jamison arrived in the mail and I started flipping through the pages.

Bertha and Mom

Found this old school small square black and white photo of “Bertha and Mom” (so it states on the back) while walking to work the other day at the corner of S. Charles St. and Ostend St. in Federal Hill, Baltimore. It was in the gutter and had been driven over numerous times, but when … Continued

Ex Oh Ex Oh

I was taking a break from my run this morning at a shady picnic table in the park. As I leaned over to catch my breathe, I noticed a torn photograph scattered in the grass. I put the pieces together and discovered that someone probably had their heart broken recently.

The Runaways

I found this photo tucked away in an old paperback copy of Dune at the Value Village thrift store. I’m almost positive it was placed at a random page as opposed to being used as a bookmark. The book cost .69¢ but the photo is priceless. There are three names with tally marks underneath them … Continued

Time for More

This note was folded in neat little quarters, with “To: Eric” written on the outside front and back. Even with the careful labeling, it got lost in a Metro station. She sounds so wistful … hope she and Eric had time for more than just texts!
