As I write this, I’m sitting in a coffee shop in Brooklyn surrounded by strangers. Everyone here is sitting on a laptop, staring at their screens. I’m not judging — I’m doing the same thing — but I bet most of these people would love to get to know one another if they were given the chance.
But, we so often don’t get to hear the stories of the people we share space with every day—despite our curiosity.
I couldn’t stand the idea of my own curiosity going unexplored, so, I decided to talk to strangers. A lot of them.
