What Dreams May Come
Missed Connections in Manhattan
Happy Birthday, my old friend.
I know it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, but you’re always on my mind.
Thanks for all the inspirational messages you’ve sent my way – I have to admit they really make my day.
It’s been a roller-coaster ride on a tightrope with no safety net kind of year but I’m making progress every day and I’m doing it my way – just like Frankie, baby!
For the first time in a long time I’m feeling good and looking forward to the future.
I’m plotting some crazy schemes and can’t wait to share them with you.
Pretty soon we’ll be able to hang out on the roof deck and look at the stars and plan the next great adventure.
I can’t wait to see you again and put it all in motion.

Her Two Cents from the Missed Connections Chief Bottle-Finder:
A birthday missed connection is a perfect way to begin Year 2 of Lovelorn Poets. Considering the level of activity that’s happening here at Poets HQ, one could believe we’ve fallen hook, line, and sinker for those 2012 doomsday warnings and are trying to jam-pack every life goal into a brief period of time! So, just where does this new year find us? Paul Pereira, creator of our awesome logo, left his not-quite-like-Mad-Men ad agency job to start his own design business; Music Guru Guy Benoit had his script for Exhumed made into a full-length feature, and should be writing a pilot about his seasonal day-job as a historical site park ranger (hint hint); and Amber Hinds, the mastermind behind our site re-design, continues to expand her website development business and produced a video which won her the Rolls-Royce of baby strollers. As for me, I’m still searching for missed connections, working on short videos featuring music and artwork we’ve published here, and preparing for the launch of a Lovelorn Poets online store. Much bonhomie to all who have read, participated, and advised over the last year and to Andy Cherewick whose recommendation of Hess’ Journey to the East provides the daily impetus to keep this project moving forward. On that note, I’m going to take some time and watch the wheels go around. Hope you’ll do the same. We’ll be back tomorrow with our regularly scheduled programming.
