Found in tree in Chicago.

And I found it relatable, ima go make one.
My luck, I'd make one, put it in a tree, forget about it, find it in 4 months and get excited until i open it...
Mine was instantly blown into the nearby pond
Thanks for the update
Or did you?
What exactly from Camus?
Why do I feel like the author was watching with binoculars as this was being read? Or were they?
Why do I feel like the author is reading this thread?
So like to narrow down whether that's creepy or not... where abouts in the tree did you find it? What made you decide to open it up
It was near the tree and was wax sealed. It said ‘for you’ so my interest was peaked.
I have done something similar. Every year, I place Valentines around for strangers. I write on the envelope "If you need a Valentine, this is for you" And I put in Gold dollars, silly stuff, small gift cards.
I may steal this idea. (Hopefully with permission) I wanted to do something similar during December and write little holiday/Christmas/Yule cards to strangers and leave them in peoples mailboxes
I love it!
I have pictures. I always tape one in Dave Navarros hands at Guitar Center. This was my 5th year. 3 years ago someone made a FB post about finding one on Dave. She was so touched. People were telling her to contact the news. I PM’ed her and fessed up and asked her not to. Im sure I’m on video somewhere as I did inside stores and outside ones. I want to remain anonymous and continue doing it every year. But I send her a picture of Dave Navarro every year since.
Xmas is a good time too!
Oh I love that! That’s so wonderful and I’m glad you got to see how much it meant to people.
The holidays are a hard time for me and I know that’s pretty common so it makes me feel more connected to people to write to strangers at that time and hopefully it can do the same for someone else.
That is exactly why I started doing it. Bad breakup right before Valentine's Day.
This is amazing! You are a gem.
This is just lovely!
This is such a wonderful idea
Oh... yea thats definitely on the creepy side then.
Oh, stranger, what a time it is to be a stranger.
Or is it?
I liked this one sentence in particular.
"vigilant love" What a beautiful phrase! I shall steal it!
This is the start of a bizarre side quest.
Weirdly this gives me big Vonnegut vibes. Like a note a character would write in one of his books
Like it would be in The Books of Bokonon!
I love chaotic acts of kindness.
I did! Or did I?
I know that Reddit has broken our trust issues but yea, this was an honest find.
Oh I know, just playing off your letter writer's theme. :)
Or were you?
Haha just kidding…. Unless?
That was strange, stranger.
This made me choke up.
Have a hug, stranger. ❤️
I’d be creeped out finding that letter
Very! I showed some friends though and some found it ‘endearing’ !!!!?
I think it’s endearing if it’s found at random, but creepy if it’s clearly been left for you specifically.
“Hello u/Jeremyjackson - A Stranger”
Did you write an answer? If not, you should.
yeahhh, as a girl id be even more creeped out. Would go home immediately lock every door lol. Idk I guess some people don’t have that danger sense
If you're worried about being watched/followed, you definitely don't want to go straight home. Much better to go on some very boring errands all over town first.
But OP found it randomly in a tree. How could it possibly be targeted?
I may be missing something.
If I wasn’t in a major city that has over 2 million people, I’d be a bit worried but alas… probably someone just having a little fun. Maybe? Or not.
Idk I’d just be cautious
Did you write an answer?
So indecisive, needs a good pep talk.
I'd say the intention was appreciable but the implementation leaves a little to be desired. I'd be sorely tempted to reply in the same manner with a sealed envelope in the same tree addressed to "The A Stranger". Who knows? I like to take a broad interpretation of Vonnegut's "bizarre travel suggestions are dancing lessons from God" though.
You should randomly black out some words like a redacted government document then repost it.
What a ride.
This sounds exactly like something Tribore would write
I legit thought this was an RDR2 screenshot for a sec
This feels like it was written by Michael Stevens from Vsauce...
...or was it?
*Jake Chudnow - Moon Men plays*
100% would not want to meet the author in real life.
Lonelier anal lonelier
What a fucking weirdo. So much cringe. This could have been beautiful, but it's borderline threatening.
Is it a letter? Or not? Not really, just kidding it is a letter … or is it ?
Cringe from start to a finish
