When I was a kid and my parents wouldn’t buy me a teddy bear, I cried. Not because I didn’t get what I wanted, but because I had told the teddy he had a home with me and that I would keep him safe, and I had let him down. Even now, when I don’t want to give it credence, I feel a twinge: this object has a soul. A character. A vacuum tube that passed inspection in 1936. A stranger’s perfect handwriting. Lost glasses, smashed headphones, half of a lawn ornament. Keys, oh so many keys to doors I will never find. They are tiny mysteries and tiny kindnesses: finding homes for abandoned objects. I pick them up.
