It followed me home

Just another part of city living: things that people have dropped or thrown or put out on the street. Not garbage or trash, but (possibly, potentially) useful objects that are simply lying on the sidewalk, sitting on a stoop or propped up on a street-level window sill. Every urbanite has seen and passed them without a second thought: a random glove, a newspaper, a shoe. Here are some of the things I've recently found on the street and liked enough to bring home with me:

  • Ceramic coffee mugs

  • Record albums

  • Cut flowers

  • Computer software (shrink-wrapped, unused)

  • Books (many books in many languages)

  • Money

  • Cashmere scarf

  • Wristwatch (yes, it works)

  • IKEA bookshelf

  • Magazines

  • Folding umbrellas

  • Golf umbrellas

  • Videotape of The Emperor's Club marked "Academy Reviewer Copy"

  • IVAR shelf unit

  • The Emperor's Club

    Hello Anulla,

    Thank you again for your encouragement on Book Crossing. I want to commend you on your blog. Your writing is crisp and salient...some of the best prose I've ever seen on a blog.

    I saw one of the comments asking if you are a writer. Duh.

    I also love the links in your post. They augment your content both cleverly and informatively.

    Keep up the good work.
