From Sophie Blackall’s blog:
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.[From Missed Connections]
There is something about her illustrations that help make these messages rise above plaintive and/or desperate and move into the realm of poetry and beauty.
