missed connections

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. - sophie blackall

what i know for sure

  • as of november 14, 2009, this is what i know for sure... i think. musicians will continue to make music and movies will continue to be made. i love clothes, cheese, chuck bass, art, accessories, athletics and any kind of candy. my younger siblings are going to do wonderful things... big and small. my mom is kindhearted, pretty and smart. my dad is passionate, witty, playful, and very very cool. i can be irresponsible, guarded, and immature. my cousins are my very best friends. i wish i was deeply passionate about 1 thing and didn't care if everyone liked me all the time. i flock to all things pixie, charming and whimsical. time is the greatest healer and ellen degeneres is hysterically funny. everyone thinks they do, but i know i have the most wonderful friends in the world. i love everything about and everyone in columbia, mo. this is what i know for sure... i think.
