What If

Sometimes, only one person is missing, 
and the whole world seems depopulated.
— Alphonse de Lamartine

A really gorgeous, thoughtful children's book came out recently from French illustrator Blexbolex. And it's not just about people, but about the human condition.  The human condition is something I think about a lot.  This book I held in my hands, so easily shows the subtle commentary on the dichotomies of lives chosen or just plain lived.  We all exist alongside each other, our lives or our deaths can affect the people not only around us, but around the world.

The butterfly effect is something I believe in.  Some days I feel like I just have to.

I want to read this book. In my life astronauts are quite connected to dreamers. Yup, butterfly effect and chaos theory...
I'm off to NYC tomorrow and I will think of you.
hugs, lots of them
