Did you know that Beethoven took his coffee so seriously that he determined that 60 beans should go into each cup and he would even count them out?  I am a coffee fanatic, but he has me beat!  That’s one of the tidbits of curious information from Mason Curry’s book, Daily Rituals: How Artists Work.  Lots of other musicians are represented in the book including Mozart, Chopin, Britten, Gershwin, Reich, and Shostakovich to name just a few.  Plenty of other occupations are included as well.  The book is an interesting and quick read. 

We’re off to Tucson tomorrow!
