~ Missed Connections ~

This blog is by children's book illustrator Sophie Blackall:

and her other blog, Missed Connections:

Missed Connections is so intriguing to me ~ and it's so very true. When you really think about those moments in time that bring 2 people together in a fleeting moment and the what ifs in case they did not speak to each other.  Just makes me wonder what I might have missed out on when I was much younger and always rushing from one place to another, always in a hurry and pushing toward whatever I thought was 'next'.  I really try to take the time now to nod, smile, speak or engage in conversation.  I find that Ms. Blackall's drawings are simplistic but so telling...she's a very talented and creative lady.

Another thought just crossed my mind...do you ever read Post Secrets? http://postsecret.blogspot.com/      Frank, the creator, updates the site every Sunday morning. I will always remember one postcard that said something like, "everyone thinks I died as a result of 9/11".  Wow!  

Just a few thoughts I felt like sharing this evening.

Pat-Thanks for stopping by. I have seen something similar to "missed connections" on Craiglist--that version is a little creepy :) Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!
