May Musings from Terry

Seems like it was just April the other day, and I guess technically it was. We’re already 5 months into 2019 and I’m just wondering where the past 4 months have gone. My garden is wondering where I’ve been and I’ve been trying to explain that we had snow around our house until April 20th– at least that’s the excuse I am going with.

In the world of coffee, our Limited Edition Rwanda is still tasting great. Looks like we’ll have it around for a couple more weeks. If you haven’t had a chance to try it, don’t wait too long. Really great as a pour-over/brewed coffee. We’ve been cupping a lot of coffees trying to come up with our next Limited, and the only clue I am allowed to give at this time is that it rhymes with the place the Winter Olympics in 1992 were held. That’s it, I’ve already said too much.

Books and Authors. If you haven’t checked out Get Lit! in Spokane, put it on your calendar for next year. Lots of great authors and events (most free) and they have on occasion found their way to Coeur d’Alene. Tommy Orange, author of There There, spoke at NIC. (Although not open to the public “officially,” some of us got front row seats—maybe we are just too old hassle.) Oh yeah, he was a Pulitzer finalist this year. The Well Read Moose bookshop along with our local public libraries also host a number of fantastic authors/events throughout the year. Check it out. You probably won’t have to sneak in.

Pie and Whiskey. This is an amazing event and seriously, having people read to you just seems like a great luxury. Plus, pie and whiskey. Check it out here. DOMA has been a proud sponsor of both Get Lit! and Pie and Whiskey, and we feel very fortunate to be a small part of something awesome.

Now, I’ll leave you with this: “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” —Jane Goodall.
