For Kyle

I found this five in the till at work when I was counting out the money at the end of the day. Of course as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it so I switched it for a five of my own.

The Spy Plan

Espionage and counter-espionage in the park. I found this evidence of spies in our midst one spring day.

Blue Hamster

It never got mailed. Forty years later, found in a side pocket of a second-hand old Samsonite suitcase.

Golden Jubilee

Discovered behind the furnace, in the basement of a house I once lived in.

Simone

Found this in the top dresser drawer of a cabin we rented. I have it framed. We love Simone the paraplegic dog.

Caffeine Craving

This one was found walking with my class from the Gladstone in Toronto back to the Go Station.

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.

Our Shades

We found this in a free box on someone’s yard. It originally came in a broken frame, which someone tried to fix with peanut butter.
