I found this small note on the sidewalk (in front of some bars) in the Hawthorne neighborhood. Ruth seems like a nice lady.
Found stuck between the Frango Mints boxes on display at Marshall Field’s (now Macy’s) on State Street in Chicago a few days before Christmas.
I saw this on the ground walking through the rain on Brigham Young University campus. It was folded and wet. Hope you’re happy, Bradley. It sounds like somebody loves you.
In 1994 I bought the Bob Dylan Greatest Hits Vol. 2 LP at Discount Records (R.I.P.) and this 45 was stuck in the sleeve with the original two records.
Found this in the back of “The Bedside Book of the Art of Living” that I had found near an abandoned house in my neighborhood.
Thin thighs as it turns out, are the only important thing in life.
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.
I bought Nicholas Sparks’ A Walk to Remember at my local library’s bookstore. A beautiful but tragic love story. Inside I found a real love letter written on the first page. After reading it I couldn’t help but wonder what happened to them and why anyone would misplace such a beautiful letter.
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.
I found this note written on a bank change-slip placed in a double envelope when I was renovating my house.
