All Over Coffee

All Over Coffee is a weekly sketch/written piece in the San Francisco Chronicle. It's written by Paul Madonna and I've come to love it. Typically, it's a sketch with some text in or around it. The drawings are usually urban settings and the text could be the voice of a character or a thought coming out of one of the buildings. All Over Coffee may be an acquired taste, but I really enjoy it.

I feel like I'm not doing it justice so in the author's own words:

All Over Coffee strips are time bombs, moments that on the surface appear meaningless or rando
m, but later, while going about your day, trigger connections.

The subjects are the details of life: city and landscapes coupled with observations, scenes and slivers of conversations.

Here is one of the best ones I've seen in a long time.

I found this to be a bit haunting. It really made me think. I would suggest checking it out on the web here so you can read it better.
