**This is a post is a sock puppet for my daughter.** (Married, in her 30s, has an online editing business but has time on her hands.) Last year, she felt she didn't get outside enough, so she had a private plan, The Park Project. She spent time in a park every day for a year. It was a challenge, but had wonderful personal results.
This year, she's trying something more difficult. She's shy, yet wants to meet more people. So she's initiated The People Project -- to meet and at least chat with and give her name to 365 new people. One a day.
She asked me to ask the Seattle hive mind which coffee places seem the most open to strangers speaking to each other. Or any other ideas, for that matter. She's got a list: dog park, volunteer activities, churches, bars (not a favorite) -- but if you know of an unusual place with friendly people, she'd welcome the suggestion. And, of course, if you go to her site and would like to meet her, please send her an email.
