The clipboard

As mentioned in a previous post I am trying something new, this evening I placed a clipboard on a bench with a simple note...in hopes that something will use it to communicate. Now my first feeling is that the chances are very slim but it's a different approach, so I'll see how it goes.

I took some photos:

(The note that will probably not be understood if something ends up finding it)

(A view of the area around the clipboard)

Also notice that it's a neon green color to make it easier to spot if it gets moved or ends up on the ground. I'm going to be checking on this in the morning, fully expecting nothing to have changed but optimistic with the possibility. I also have been debating all day in my mind whether or not to leave out a camera all night...but finally decided that in order to do that I would have to leave it out, risking it being taken. Secondly it's not great at picking things up at night (as in some of the youtube videos), and thirdly the presence of a recording device is a major deterrent to anything that is conscious of being seen. The goal in this case is to make these things comfortable enough to interact with the clipboard.

  1. Brother.

    I continue to support you. I am whole heartily excited by this new attempt at communication. Also nice to see that you still live, I have been most worried!

    Continue, continue! For the sake of the reliving the fantastical side of this world.
