Battery

I was working at a Red Cross shelter set up to aid victims of an apartment fire. These guys lost everything, so we were taking donations of clothing. In one bag of clothes, I found the attached note.

Not Baby-Baby, My Man

Another mysterious paper from one of the university recycling bins during move-out week. For a lot of students, college offers more than just academic growth.

The Weight of Weight

I tore these pages out of a weight loss book that I found at Goodwill one day.

More Justice

Here is the rest of the journal.

In a Sue Book

My mother found this journal entry when she was clearing out our basement.

Chapter 1

Found this on a sidewalk near Martha’s Vineyard a couple years ago. It still makes me laugh. What the heck!

Avoid Fringe

This is a page from the diary of a freshman college student that I found it at a rummage sale.

It Was a Good Day

I found this in the hallways of my high school two years ago.

A Beautiful Butterfly

Found this crumpled up into a tight little ball, on the street in the fairly downtrodden Tenderloin District. Kinda sad that such a heartfelt message of hope got discarded with such intention.

Justice

This is from a school journal I found lying on the street. What follows is sea sickness, famine, and one hellish night spent on a floating plank of wood in black freezing water. That’s enough to seize the darkest corners of insanity … because she stole a lighter. Stay tuned.
