FOUND by Grace at a McDonald’s
FOUND by Todd Gastelum in Nashville, Tennessee
Sifting through old papers, I rediscovered this note, which I originally found posted on a bulletin board at a gay bar in Nashville in 1997. It is written on the back of a photocopied flyer for a retail store named OUTLOUD! Books & Gifts for Our Entire Community. (Check out our new video rental section!) At the time, it just seemed funny that someone would pin this to a corkboard in a bar. Now, 15 years later, it just seems sad and desperate and so … retro, in this age of Craigslist and smartphone apps specifically designed to work better than serendipity. I enjoy how directly the writer communicates his offer; it seems odd, however, that he wishes the reader good luck when it is he, David, who obviously needs it.
FOUND by Sarah Adamson underneath her windshield wiper
I have a honk-for-gay-rights bumper sticker on my car and get honks daily but today I got this note underneath my windshield wiper. It brought a smile to my face.
FOUND by Evie in Norfolk, Virginia
I am taking a photography class at Old Dominion University. Our assignment was to research an artist/photographer and I chose Chuck Close. I went to the school’s art library and was leafing through the Parkett Magazine, Volume 60 when I came across this letter. It is written in French and appears to be a love letter for Jonathan from Rob.

Found crumpled outside of a school just floating in the wind.
