Who was it that stated, with great conviction, that "There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch" and even made a silly acronym for it (TANSTAAFL) ? I believe the opinion, here, is that any lunch that seems to be free comes with a hidden payment plan or a hidden agenda.
Well, I hereby differ in my belief, I say that we can all work hard and do good things for each other, and that lunch can, indeed, be free! I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is (so to speak ;-) ), and I invite you to join me.
So here's my offer to you: Let's Do Lunch! I'm buying it (or making it, if we choose that).
Truth be known, if I don't already know you, I'll opt to buy it.
We can pick a place, meet, and have lunch together. Just FYI, I like to eat healthy food & prefer plants to animals.
(And, if you are not local to me, we can still meet for lunch...just need to make travel plans...could get complicated)
AND, with the current Pandemic, I'm open to a video-chat Lunch...which may be part of our "new normal"
During lunch, I'm open to talk about whatever is alive for you in your life right now. Tell me your hopes, fears, & dreams :-)
Life Coaching? Maybe, but let's not try to fix anything.
Empathy? Sure, but let's not be obsequious about it.
I'm thinking more like a causal chat between friends (new friends, old friends, all good!)
Is there a hidden agenda or a hidden payment plan? No.
I have a (non-hidden) agenda: to promote healing everywhere.
I have a (non-hidden) payment plan: Please Pay-It-Forward: take someone else out to lunch sometime & connect!
Okay! Let me know when you have an appetite to connect! :-)

Training & Qualifications
I am an excellent listener & know a few yummy lunch-spots. I'm happy to buy you lunch and to know that your day or week can be a little lighter for it. This is very much worthwhile to me!
What qualifications do I need to be an excellent choice as a lunch companion? The same qualifications that you need:
I am a decent human being who cares about other humans. I have compassion in my heart. I want to receive and offer help to re-make society into one of greater connection and stronger ties. I enjoy eating and would rather share that time with someone else. I want to lift your spirits and I want my spirits to be lifted, also. We'll feel better, and the whole world, consequently, will be a little better, too.
Availability & Preferences
I live & work in the SF Bay Area. Tell me where you are!
