There is a great talk by JJ Abrahm at TED where he talks about the unseen mystery. Faris has talked about curiosity gaps. We had a go at it ourselves with the Dolly Hill and Mindy Morgan pages on Facebook.
But tell me what is going on with this?
I assume that Mom has left. But is she dead? It seems like she is. But the kids seems very well adjusted - are they coping with the loss better than Dad? Would they be so chirpy if she'd simply walked out and left their Dad broken hearted? They'd harbour some simmering resentment that would come through, wouldn't they?
A piece of accidental genius.
