Have you “found” something?

I’m working with a small group to start a new arts organization here in my city. I keep referring to myself as a “founder” or “founding member,” and it’s gotten me thinking about that word, “founder.”

Isn’t it interesting? Companies, countries, organizations, initiatives. They all have founders.

Something has to be found. The ideas, concepts, values… they already exist! You just have to discover it, uncover it. You just have to find it!

There’s a lot of pressure as a creative person to do all the creating, and that’s important.

But sometimes you just find it instead. Sure, you might polish it up, assemble it, rearrange it, optimize it.

But the wheel’s always existed. No one made it. They just found it.

What have you found (or founded) lately?
