About a month ago, Coffee Worth turned 100 years old. I first met Coffee while working in an intentional community in Comer, Georgia. Although Coffee was by far the oldest resident in the community, she set a perfect example of what it means to live in community: give a little, take a little and be patient. After my evening garden chores were completed, I would often visit Coffee to gleam some words of wisdom or special insights from her. My evenings were filled with stories of Coffee’s time living in South Korea for 10 years or fighting against racism by participating in marches during the civil rights movement in the states. Coffee is an amazing woman and although I cannot celebrate her birthday in Georgia this year, I can pause to reflect on all that I’ve learned from her. Happy 100th birthday Coffee!
