the lost Lost text

The main text from the Lost Project created for the trAce online writing 
community; visitors to the site were asked to enter their email address and 
then describe something they lost. On "playback" the list of email addresses 
was separated from the list of the lost; in other words, the tether was broken. 
The text of what was lost is a form of literature itself; it had disappeared in 
my files until now. What was lost is now found, what is found can never be 
recuperated. I think the Lost Project is still located at the trAce archives; 
trAce ended as a community headed by Sue Thomas, a few years ago. The project 
was created around 1999-2000, when I was trAce's second virtual 
writer-in-residence. Please check out the text; it's oddly beautiful, the 
result of so many minds.

I want to thank again everyone who made this possible at the time.
