Let's Meet Up for Coffee!

Wherever you may be in the world, let's meet up for coffee.


You, my dear reader.

Coffee, café au lait, latte, cappuccino, tea, or even hot chocolate. Whatever strikes your fancy.

Because I have a story to share. Mine. And I'd love to hear yours and get to know you as well. In fact, everyone has a story.

We are faced with intersectionalities in life that shape our experiences and therefore makes us the people we are today. At times, we either are put into roles or choose not to allow others to see us for who we truly are.

After all, most of our lives revolve around our interactions with people and how we present ourselves to others.

And we are still getting to know ourselves better all at the same time as we continue to embark on the journey we call life.

We need not to agree on everything, but we can have a peaceful discourse. We can talk about whatever is interesting to us at the moment.

Struggles and joys of parenting. Gender identity. Religion. Global warming. Living simply.

No topic too little or big or even taboo. Things should be discussed openly and in a respectful manner without fear of reprisals. No one should ever have to apologize for having an opinion.

I am not going to lie. I can be rather eccentric at times. I do not presume to have all the answers in life. In fact, I struggle and wrestle with various issues.

Even though we are different people, I have learned over the years that we are really more the same than we think we are different.

All of us have fears, dreams, and hopes.

All of us want to be loved and be happy.

There is no rush. We have time. While we are at it, we might as well as wear those funky Converse shoes we have had lying around in our closets for some time now and have some fun. Even laugh. Just let things be and not take ourselves--or life--too seriously. Life is simply too short.

If you would like to share something, please feel free to send me an e-mail. Who knows? Maybe I'll even have a guest blogger here from time to time.

So begins our conversation. Until the next time.


  1. I love your way of "speaking". You have a such strong voice, and I love reading what you have to share. I really look forward to what you have to share with us!

  2. I love the discussion on your blog and what coffee is all about. It's all about the interaction:-)
