The odd sync web connecting lost planes and people—Lauren Bacall, Robin Williams, and Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.
It all began on 7/18 I when saw this Twitter post showing the female form as a wisp of smoke.
The same day there was an epic R.J. Reynolds lawsuit settlement awarded to a smoker's widow in Florida.

I had an offhand thought about smoke and air, and how the smoke syncs could be related to The Smoke Monster in the TV show Lost (note: more AIRplanes falling out of the sky this past month in Ukraine, Iran and Brazil).
On 8/4, fellow sync blogger Merovee posted this pic of a man smoking a cigarette with the smoke trail forming a woman's face.

Turns out, the man in the pic was Humphrey Bogart and the woman was his wife Lauren Bacall. Bacall passed away a week later on 8/12, the same day as famed comic Robin Williams.
|Lauren BAcall (thanks Jason). In ancient Egyptian beliefs the BA was the soul or spirit.|
Robin Williams' joyful comedy lifted our spirits in so many ways. In both he and Bacall's deaths we symbolically see the loss of two original, fundamental creating principles of a divine nature—Beauty and Joy.
Like a lifeless body devoid of the invigorating breath of life (note: BREATH/AIR is choked out by smoke), Form without the animating principle of Spirit/Beauty/Joy...is dead.
On 8/7, Twitter notified me that I had a new follower. When I clicked on it, this was her profile header:
I also noticed a smoke sync on the new HBO series "The Leftovers", a show about the aftermath of a rapture-like event where random people around the world are LOST when they simply vanish into thin AIR.
|On "The Leftovers" a weird cult called The Guilty Remnant wear all-white and chain smoke.|
|In the FAQ of the fictional Guilty Remnant's website they state: “God’s judgment is upon us. |
We don’t expect to be around for very long.” Chain-smoking is the GR’s way of showing
the world that they’ve accepted this fact and aren’t afraid to face whatever’s coming.
On 8/9, an unarmed African American teenager, Michael Brown, was shot and killed on the street by police in Ferguson, MO.

Today 8/15...Ferguson police say Michael Brown was allegedly suspected of stealing a $48.99 box of Swisher Sweets CIGARS.
