This is a question Karma

Sue Denham writes, "I once slipped out of work two hours early without the boss noticing. In my hurry to make the most of this petty victory, I knocked myself out on the car door and spent the rest of the day semi-conscious, bowking rich brown vomit over my one and only suit."

Have you been visited by the forces of Karma, or watched it happen to other people?

Thanks to Pooflake for the suggestion

Fragments of other people's lives
I collect orphaned lives, so to speak; I have several collections of documents and personal effects of total strangers that I bought at estate sales or flea markets or wherever just because it made me sad to think of them being forgotten. Handwritten recipe collections are my main focus but I also have random piles of letters, old ledgers, photographs and all manner of little things.

I believe you did a good thing in rescuing what you did and in trying to save more. Maybe something in the universe decided you were a better keeper of this man's memory than his own family would be.

If I may ask, whereabouts outside of Richmond was this? We go up that way fairly often and I'm very fond of photographing abandoned buildings.
