Good afternoon my creative fiends. I have quite the puzzle for you today.

Let’s pay close attention to these dates: July 31, 1944, 44 times a day, disappeared at age 44 in 1944.

Now, who am I talking about and why are these dates important?

Antoine de Saint-Exupe’ry was shot down and disappeared during a reconnaissance flight in 1944.

He was a French aviator and author. He is known above all else for his lyrical novella The Little Prince. This book has sold over 150 copies worldwide and has been translated in to hundreds of languages.

He crashed in to the Mediterranean Sea on July 31, 1944 yet his body was never identified.

What partly inspired his novella was a crash that he survived in the Libyan Desert. These events are described in the fable-like book The Little Prince.

In his book a pilot crash lands in the desert and encounters a mysterious boy who then travels through the universe only to be persuaded to return to his own planet to tend to a black rose that he planted there.

Saint-Exupe’ry also wrote a well regarded novel Night Flight, and a prize-winning memoir Wind, Sand, and Stars.

The question I offer you is, was this an intention death, or disappearance?

Look at this puzzle:

In The Little Prince, the boy views the sunset on his planet 44 times a day. Saint-Exupe’ry disappears at age 44, in 1944. Is it a coincidence or not?

Let your mind wander and your imagination take you on a journey.
