Poetry Friday: From Missed Connections by Sophie Blackall

"We have only one life, and we rush through it. We make choices and follow paths and we don't linger too long at crossroads. Moments of intimacy with strangers are minor detours we rarely explore, but those moments make us feel alive, and human, and part of something greater than ourselves. Then connect us to each other."

- from the introduction of Missed Connections by Sophie Blackall
