He holds the flyer in his hand. Yes, it is nonsense--but just to feel better, just to hear something. Anything is better than not knowing where his daughter is.
I keep finding Teresa's flyers on the subway:
August 2, 2012 - N train to Brooklyn
Mai 2, 2013 - on the R train in Brooklyn
Each version is a little different. The first one I found was just white and not very well laid out. Then the flyers got a better layout and they changed color. There is a yellow and pink version and even a version with blue ink.
The three flyers shown here also show differences in the content of the copy:
The first one points out that the individual is a southern spiritualist and claims all kinds of fantastic abilities that ultimately come from a connection to a god and can cure many of life's problems.
The second one has no mention of the South anymore.
The third one has a name change. Now the individual is called "Ms. Teresa" and further down in the text is referred to as "Sister Teresa." The claims of curing alcoholism and problems with cheating are added.
It would be interesting to find out what motivations there were for leaving out the South and adding the cure for alcoholism and cheating. Were those problems assumed to affect the target group? Does the target group not want to get help from people from the South?--and lastly: Who is the target group?
