lost and...

I FOUND something quite remarkable. I heard the guy who started this site on the Connection last night and thought it was fascinating. Basically he is a collector of 'found' items; notes, drawings, pictures etc. Things that other people have discarded or lost and are now without ownership. We get to see and interpret things of a intimate personal nature created by complete strangers. I think it is fun to make up stories associated with these items. Whole worlds can be created...
This whole idea reminded me of the Words and Voices project that I am embarking on right now. Here's the first song; there are more to come (I hope). I am not finding things accidentally like the FOUND guys, but am proactively going out into the world to collect words spoken by voices from a broad array of places. My family, my friends, complete strangers. Thus far, most of the words have been my own, but this will change, I think. I guess I find it similar to FOUND in that it is filled with glimpses into the personal and celebrates seemingly insignificant bits and pieces of life.
