Carlton: July 31, 2013

It was a tall, skinny week in Carlton, hence this. Food is happening, which can make it difficult to be tall and skinny, unless you eat that new coffee popcorn stuff at the Carlton Store that is super healthy and good for you. Serious addiction possibilities. Also you can now buy fresh Willow Brook Farm...

Carlton

By SUE MISAO Hi Carlton people, I would tell you the haps but it’s too hot and besides I just washed my windows for like the first time in about 10 years and I’m super confused because I don’t know where I am or where all those plants and things came from. I mean who...

The news is grim, but thankfully most of it is outside the relative safety of Carlton. Plane/train crashes and military coups and armed vigilantes remind us of the fragility of life, and how bizarre and curious and seemingly unlikely our individual survival is. How is it that I’m still alive? Or am I? Any day...

According to my telephone, it’s 82 degrees out there and the sun is shining, there’s a slight breeze, butterflies are flitting about and flowers are absolutely glowing. All this from a phone. It is such a joy to sit indoors and type out that...

BY SUE MISAO It was kind of a cool, buggy, muggy, rainy, warmish week in Carlton, good for pulling weeds and burning old tree parts that somehow got separated from their original bodies. Trees are just giant weeds that escaped the lawn mower enough times to become unmowable. Every plant, from the tiniest blade of...

BY SUE MISAO There’s a note on the Carlton Post Office door apologizing for the state of the flower garden. It’s true we have been spoiled by having such flowerful landscaping to tiptoe through on the path to our junk mail. According to the note, this will be solved as soon as the new gardener...

  BY SUE MISAO Carlton on poetry is Carlton indeed, and it’s all coming to a venue near you, right in the downtown corridor, specifically that building across the street from the store (call 341-9199 if you need directions) starting on Earth Day, April 22, in the form of a “Poetry Open House” with cookies...

BY SUE MISAO Is this your painting? Because if it is, I have it and am willing to sell it back to you for an outrageous sum of money. This bovinely inspired work of exquisite beauty, painted on a large piece of plywood, was hiding in an abandoned ice house somewhere on my property when...
