Day 1522: Found objects

A couple of weeks ago, I couldn’t find the mallet for my mindfulness chime.

I objected to that loss, because I’ve been using that mindfulness chime in every group therapy session I’ve facilitated over the last four years. I looked and looked for the missing object, but it was nowhere to be found.

Because my groups would object if I stopped using that chime for mindfulness, I used  different found objects to ring it, including pens, scissors, markers … whatever object I found that would make a sound.

Eventually, I ordered a new chime, which I found in the mail last week.

Yesterday, I opened my umbrella …

… and found this object:

I guess that found object had fallen into my closed umbrella at work and then hid there until I found it weeks later.

I hope you don’t object to my finding these conclusions about that found object:

  1. When objects seem lost, they may very well be found again.
  2. Hope is the best found object of all.
  3. There are interesting objects to be found, everywhere:

I found two teabags with the same message yesterday!  I didn’t object.

Here are some Found Objects I found on YouTube:

 

You’ll always find gratitude at the end of my posts, for every person and object that help me create them and for you — of course! — who’ve found this blog, here and now.
