012: Found Caprices

The found Caprice steadies my footing, I know this momentary embrace is fleeting, and I try not to look away, but when I do there is only clouds and sky and we are floating.

Found Caprice - My feet are steady, but when I look up, it is vertigo again. Are their faces shifting also?


“All that had so long engaged my attention suddenly grew despicable. By one of those caprices of the mind which we are perhaps most subject to in early youth, I at once gave up my former occupations, set down natural history and all its progeny as a deformed and abortive creation, and entertained the greatest disdain for a would-be science which could never even step within the threshold of real knowledge. In this mood of mind I betook myself to the mathematics and the branches of study appertaining to that science as being built upon secure foundations, and so worthy of my consideration.”

-Excerpt from Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft (Godwin) Shelley

Found List: Found Caprices

I am always interested in finding more Caprices. If you have some to share I would really enjoy talking with you about them. For instance, have you found a Caprice in a novel, your town, an experience, art, a human, a memory, an adventure? A Caprice is but a glimpse of a whim so you can definitely stretch your imagination. I cannot wait to see what you come up with!
