Missed Connection – Sophie Blackall, creator of Missed Connections, has taken upon herself an almost impossible mission that is both compelling and inspiring. In her own words: “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.”
Accompanied by Blackall’s amazing illustrations, each entry (submitted by users) is another soulful hope of capturing that fleeting moment you had when you saw that cute boy at Starbucks. Several examples of Missed Connections’ true power are Doing Laundry in Our Building, and Help with Luggage. I encourage you to submit your personal Missed Connection – you can remain anonymous and simply let out what you’ve been keeping in since that random, unexpected meeting.
