FOUND by Julie at Trapp Farm Park; Eagan, MN
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.
FOUND by Cynthia Wood; San Francisco, CA
I found this pink piece of paper on my block. There’s a certain poignancy to what it says, don’t you think? And the absence of any punctuation is curious (was it going to be a poem? Or a song?) There’s also a curious leap in logic, it seems, or else a misunderstanding of the services of a palm reader, as I’ve never known them to be in the business of granting wishes.
FOUND by Shannon in Colorado
I buy books from the thrift store for my students to read in class during free reading time. One of the kids found this note inside a copy of “The Last Unicorn” by Peter S. Beagle. If I ever meet the person who gave away this book (Merril, presumably) I’ll be giving them a piece of my mind.
