The shelf revisited



In a previous post, I showed the little shelf that someone had attached to the light pole by the bus stop around the corner from our house. It was empyy for a long time, then I started to put stones on it. After the shooting at Virginia Tech, I started to write words or phrases on stones and tiles, and place them on the shelf, where they could be taken by passers-by or people waiting for a bus. They would be gone; sometimes, tiny flowers would appear. Once a single silver earring was on the shelf briefly. Lost, then found, maybe. Yesterday morning, I had the biggest treat. I found this little wire "thanks" on the shelf. Wow! someone left me something. This morning, I put up a stone saying "you're welcome." One other thing, the tiles and stones get rearranged by somebody, or somebodies. This is such fun! Sort of like the old PostcardX, Found, and Postsecret.
