What comes to your mind when you think about a key? Sometimes you need to know where they are, and sometimes you know where they are but don't know what they're for. Last week my daughter was looking into her daddy's wallet when she found a lonely key. What is it for, she asked... he said (as a joke) "it's the key to happiness, I always carry it around in case I need to use it someday". The real answer is that he had forgotten what it's for.
What would you do if you really had an actual key, you know the metal kind, copper or zinc or whatever.. and know you could use it in case you needed to find happiness? where could you use it? would you use it to win the lottery? or in your body should you needed to be healthy again? I don't know what I would do with it but I think I would be too scared to use it, you know what your mother always says about being careful of what you wish for because it could come true.
Maybe I wouldn't keep it for myself but then, who to give it to? and why? and what for? is anyone more worthy of it? This is the question I release to the world today. I will leave this card tomorrow in the passports office where I have to go get my new one.. It'll have the post it note that says "read me".
I don't know if I'll be able to take a picture of it, but I'll definitely try!
Go check Kathy LaRocco's entry for Found Art Tuesdays, here:
I didn't leave the card in the passports office after all because there was too many guards there and I was afraid I might get in trouble, besides there was a cleaning lady there and I was afraid the card might get thrown away, so instead I took a friend of mine to get some coffee and we went into a mall where they have a new starbucks! (a new thing here in Monterrey) or as we call it here: el estar-boc
so we left the card in a table and waited outside starbucks to see who found it, we had no trouble having someone pick it up, this girl sat down at the table, picked it up and put it in her bag! so this is different from what has happened in the U. S.!
this is me right before leaving starbucks reading the back of the card again, wondering if I should write it in Spanish as well, I decided not to, and leave it all in English. I imagined whoever found it would be able to understand what it said.
This is the girl who found the card (the one with the white arrow in her head) she's reading the front of the card, after a minute of looking at it she put it in her bag! yeeeeeeiiiiii!!! viva san!!
