"People in Eastern cultures are not so worried about schedules and quotas and sales figures and returning emails and phone calls quickly. They are interested in personal contact. They are interested in firm handshakes and good food and strong coffee and sweet tea and looking in a man’s eyes to see if he is a good man or a bad man and whether he can be trusted or not."Joel Rosenberg; Inside the Revolution

I Love, LOVE, Love this quote!!!! Its interesting that last night I was talking to a friend that I just meet from Ethiopia and she was saying that she misses the community from home...for example when you make coffee you never drink it alone....there is usually 10 to 15 people that show up to just talk about the day....she then said that when she first moved her she made coffee and was getting ready to knock on all the neighbors door in her apartment building to come have some until her husband informed her that is not what they do hear....but why not...why are we all so busy that the most important things in life like relationships are not as important to us as watching our favorite tv shows on DVR.

I think my friends idea is genius and I think that I am going to make some coffee and invite the neighbors over.....
