Why “Over Coffee”?

Why did I call this blog “Over Coffee”? Why do I say “Let’s get coffee and talk”?

Because the thing I enjoy most is a great conversation. It’s the best feeling in the world to sit down with someone and explore ideas and think deeply about what’s happening around us. I love it when I learn something new or change my perspective. It’s a joy when someone tells me that they’ve learned something from me.

And often, great conversations happen during a long lunch, or with a glass of wine, or over a cup of coffee.

I don’t want this blog to be me telling you what I think. My vision is that it is you and me having a conversation. But I get to pick the topic. Because otherwise it’s just a blank page with a comment box. And also, I guess, because there’s got to be something about it that makes it my blog.

Feel free to disagree with me. I want to learn from you and from your perspective and your experience. I might even change my mind. Feel free to question my assumptions and my conclusions or to wonder aloud. Even feel free to change the subject.

So, please join me: let’s get a cup of coffee and talk.
