If We Were Having Coffee // All to Myself

One thought on “If We Were Having Coffee // All to Myself”

  1. Hi Lisa,

    I’m very new to this coffee club and you can find my first (relaxing) offering near yours under the link titled GWilson ….

    I did a quick review of your blog site, and in the interest of full disclosure, you and I could hardly be more different – except where you point out that you are from a forgiving family and that you are clearly a well intended person deep down to your core. I do grace in the Christian sense of things and that means that my friends do not need to meet my standards for anything to deserve my friendship. I do have little use for dishonesty, cruelty or blatant evil intents. But that doesn’t sound like you at all.

    I had a great childhood with parents who daily sacrificed to make sure my sisters and I had healthy lives. Their model became such a major theme for how my wife and I have raised our kids.

    I like a lot of people who are not like me. I often find things to learn from them and perhaps you and I could be similar friends. I am 63, so have done some living and have both some wisdom and scars to prove it.

    I offer a chance to lighten up your day. You sounded kinda down, and I think I can make you laugh.

    My current writing project is to collect short (>2000 word) autobiographical and funny stories from growing up about an hour north of San Francisco. While I’m looking for good clean laughs, I really want to get good at leaving my readers with vivid mental images of each event. I want them to enjoy and recall each event as if they were there with me. So I take the first person voice and treat each account as if my reader is sitting there with me and I’m revving them up for a good laugh.

    I invite you to review a few of my stories. Each one is designed for most readers to be in and out within 10 minutes – so no War and Peace missives will be found in my collection. If interested or even still struggling with being alone for the weekend, I would be honored if you stopped by; https://garyawilsonstories.wordpress.com/ , tried out a few stories and let me know if I delivered the promised laugh.

    From most laughs, good friendships can be built.
    I recommend the Giant Inner Tube and Buckeye stories to start with.

    Regardless, I look forward to hearing how life is treating you and perhaps the chance to trade ideas.
    Warmest regards,
