Feeling the fortune love

I have received a variety of delightful packages or notes filled with fortunes for my new art project, Fortunately.  For more about this project please see my previous post here.  I wanted to share one such happy event with you!  This is from my new art penpal, who recently moved away to get her PhD in a fantasy land called the big apple.  She indicated that I HAD to rip it open and not gently slide the secret center surprise out as I wanted to experience it. She is a risk taker, I am a rule follower, so there you go. I ripped it, and ripped it good.

Will you send me your fortune? I’m working on an art project, named Fortunately, for which I need LOTS of your fortunes from fortune cookies. I have a general tendency to collect strange leftover items that may be slated for the refuse pile, so this is not really new for me. For example, I still obsessively collect cardboard coffee cup sleeves (especially the holiday varieties.) They make great art materials. But this time I really need your help, as there is no way I can acquire this amount of fortune on my own.

I’m giddy with anticipation. Feel free to give this information to anyone who would enjoy participating in my piece, especially those who love to support their local takeout establishment! Thank you in advance!
