Found Art – Photo By Susan Firer

I hadn’t thought of Found Art for a long time–not until receiving Susan Firer’s photos this week, in response to an email from me, inviting her to send them.

We heard Susan and several other poets read at the Milwaukee Public Library two Springs ago.  Susan was Milwaukee’s Poet Laureate then and I received her book, Milwaukee Does Strange Things to People, as a birthday gift. * She kindly responded when I wrote to her about my mother having taught in the same English Dept. at UWM.   We also received a lovely card from Mom’s former Dept. when she passed away in 2004; Mom retired in 1984.

Kindness.

Inspiration.

Found Art.

*This book by Susan was published by The Backwaters Press (2007).
