So far I've not lost a camera anywhere outside my home, although I lost one under a living-room chair for quite a while and bought another one before I found it. Hey, I don't move chairs every time I vacuum, OK?
I almost always peruse Post Secret on Sundays. If you don't know about the Post Secret website, it exists so people who have a secret they can't share with anyone they know can share it anonymously with the whole world. Some of the secrets are "R-rated", but many of them are made up of the sort of little things everybody keeps to themselves because the secret might hurt someone they love. I never had anything to send them, but today I realized I do have a secret, just one of those things you might say to your best friend, but nobody else. But I digress.
You will have to click on the link to read this story, but it's a great one, full of human kindness; I can't see that anyone would be sorry if they read it, and if you've ever lost a camera, there's a chance you just might find it.
