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.
