missed connections

I just stumbled upon this blog by Sophie Blackall, where she illustrates the "missed connections" section of Craigslist.

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.

These give me so much hope... enjoy.
