missed connections

Currently loving Sophie Blackall's ongoing 'Missed Connections' series of illustrations.  She describes them best...

"Messages in bottles, smoke signals, letters written in the sand; the modern equivalents are the funny, sad, beautiful, hopeful, hopeless, poetic posts on Missed Connections websites. Every day hundreds of strangers reach out to other strangers on the strength of a glance, a smile or a blue hat. Their messages have the lifespan of a butterfly. I'm trying to pin a few of them down."

You can see more of them in her Etsy shop.

And speaking of missed connections, I missed a call from my niece this morning.  Apparently she threw a bit of a tantrum until her mother agreed to let her call Aunt Dana - and I was sleeping.  Darn it.
