Finder Responce for Journal 27!

Finder Responce for Journal 27!

journal-27-finder_webThis morning the finder for Journal 27, Jono, posted on the Sharing Ink Facebook Page this very beautiful story about his experience…

He also posted the story on the I’ve Found A Journal page on the website. I’m so pleased he went to the trouble to ensure I could read his experience!

Thanks so much for letting us know, Jono!

Journal 17′s Finder blogged about the experience!

Journal 17′s Finder blogged about the experience!

This is so lovely. Journal 17′s Finders are Catherine and Paul. Catherine has been following along on the Facebook page so knew what to look out for, and when they found one, Paul wrote about the experience on his reviewing blog.

Guerrilla Kindness, Hidden Spaces, Einstein, Debacles

August 3, 2013
Melbourne, Victoria

Arrived at the Arts Centre car park at bit early for our pre-Einstein Dafternoon Tea (dinner served at afternoon tea time). Catherine began pestering me about some journal thing while we were walking towards Hamer Hall to have a look at Hidden Space, Ready Stages, an installation in the Riverwalk space. She was not explaining herself clearly. I thought she was talking about a new Arts publication. I was forced to look up @sharing_ink on Twitter (she’s old skool and doesn’t have a smart phone). I’m glad I did because the pic of Journal #17 had just been posted and we recognised the background of the photo as a cane table just like the one we were standing next to. There it was, just a few tables away. We bought a biscuit and fed some crumbs to the expectant sparrows while admiring the find. My annoyance at Catherine’s whims instantly evaporated. What a beautiful thing! Beneficiaries of guerrilla kindness. Thank you Sayraphim Lothian.

You can read about the rest of Paul’s night here (including how the Arts Centre lost his umbrella while he was at Einstein on the Beach, which is so weird because they did that to us a few days before!)

 

Second Finder responce for Journal 17

Second Finder responce for Journal 17

On Friday I revealed on the Sharing Ink Facebook page where Saturday’s Drop was going to be, and got a response from Catherinej17_fb1
This response made me change my plan. I was going to go in the morning to drop the Journals, but this made me think that I should drop Journals at different times in the day to allow for different people to find them. So I posted:

After doing Drop #3, I got an almost instant response from the Finder of Journal 17, which was super lovely. Later that night, the other Finder of Journal 17 posted this on the Facebook page:

I was thrilled! Not only did someone who’s been following the project find a Journal, but it was because of Catherine’s comment that I’d changed how I planned to do Drops!

Honestly, I love this project!

Journal 5′s Finder responded on the Sharing Ink Facebook page!

“Arrived from Northern NSW. Catching up with friends. Sat down on a bench to rest my weary bones and find a lovely journal outside the state library. Heading to Canberra on an overnight bus at 8PM. What will I leave behind?”

Lovely to know Journal 5 found a good home :)
