vol 2 / nr 20 / Munich, Germany

Mirjam was the first who replied to the Random Prints project this year, and her story made my rainy day in Munich to turn gold. She told me that she found the letter when she was at her lunch break from work, going to get something to eat. She got into the bus where she found the print. This is how she tells the story: Normally I always get in the front of the bus but today I went straight to the back (although there were many free chairs everywhere) and sat down at a place wherer I normally never sit. And right next to me I saw a white envelope: "to you, whoever you are". I was very, very curious and put my hand on the letter to open it when I heard a voice next to me: "You are not allowed to open it, this is private!" It was the voice of a young lady and she sounded quiete angry. Just for one second I was hesitating but then I replied: "This is for everybody, see what's written on it." She went on trying to convince me that I shouldn't open it but I didn't listen. I had the feeling that I had to open it.

When Mirjam looked inside, she said she felt happy of such a great coincidence - even though she doesn't believe in "coincidences". Mirjam tells me she loves art, so finding the message (or did it find me? she asks) touches her deeply. She will keep it for herself as "a good omen".

And one more thing, Miriam wanted to say: Along with your envelope there came a message to me: "Dont't listen to other people. Do what you feel and you will find a treasure."
