that's an interesting point Neil! i've found and we've now seen lists in Spanish but none from any other countries. How odd as we have trashpoets from other locations such as Eduardo, carina.

DK you always bring listpo to new heights! You are the "Margret Meade" of Listpo!!!!!  Wouldn't it be cool if some of the other IUOMA peeps could send their found listpo in different languages????

Maybe its not "found" art-But the art found us??????
