From the mundane to the mind-bending, it’s all there on bulletin boards.
Somewhere amid the chaos, perhaps, there is clarity. The answer to your problems. The deal of deals. A clue to what you need to know to be happier, smarter. Or, a plea for help. A call to action. An invitation. There are services rendered, services sought.
The bulletin board — the old-fashioned, off-line kind — plays social jazz, riffing on the erratic rhythm of our lives. Fliers offering pet-walking overlap notices selling self-improvement, which partly obscure the trash haulers, who distract from someone’s last-ditch effort to find her favorite sweater.
It doesn’t take anything more than a stapler to get a voice. You just need the right passerby to wade through the noisy collage and find you.
