What is it about Craigslist's missed connections section
that makes it perfect for someone like Sophie Blackall to come in and create these endearing pieces of art? Perhaps it is the place where we hope to find shared meaning in those chance encounters, to know that a higher power was trying to guide two lonely souls together. If that's the case, Sophie is a sweet angel that's trying to do her part to help out.
"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
