the mountain that looks indeed like an upturned boat. It is also related to the story or legend that developed in the community about the origin of Tangkuban Perahu. Local people believe that Mount Sangkuriang comes from the legend, the son of a beautiful woman named Dayang Sumbi. When Sangkuriang small, he was expelled by his mother for killing a dog that is believed to be incarnation of his father. After many years apart, they finally met again. This was death treated with intimacy, invited into the heart of the family home, not banished to the morgue with a kind of queasy embarrassment.² That night Mitsuo’s daughter, now my mother-in-law, slept near the body to ensure a votive candle didn’t go out. His great-granddaughters made origami grave goods – a watch, paper money, anything he might need on the journey after death. These were placed in the coffin the following …

As for me, I was put thru a mock execution because I would not respond…pistol whipped on the head….same event.. Couple of days later…hung by my feet all day. I escaped and a couple of weeks later, I got shot and recaptured. Shot was OK…what happened afterwards was not. It’s curious how the action of writing revives the memory. Maybe my hippocampus (or is it the cerebral cortex?) is sprightlier than I thought. I remember now the overcast light in the small hospital room, how we turned at the door to wave goodbye. His large purple-pink hand, bloated with gravity, waving back above the side-bars of the bed. Outside I picked up the spiky fruit of an American sweet gum by its stalk. It’s still in our apartment, in an old glass jar, like a musical note preserved in ice. But memory, it always fades.mountain

When tectonic plates smash into each other, they push the Earth’s crust higher and higher, forming mountains. Some mountain ranges, like the Himalayas, are still growing. Others, like the Appalachians, saw their heyday hundreds of millions of years ago and have been weathering away ever since. Volcanoes also form mountains and periodically erupt – scraping clear the landscape. Carbondale is an arts” town, and is a central hub of arts activity in the Roaring Fork Valley from Aspen to Rifle. Our Mountain Fair celebrates art in all forms of expression, and is known for its diverse range, non-stop entertainment, great food and amazing spirit. Our juried fair is continually looking for interesting new musical acts, handmade goods and food.

The Carbondale Mountain Fair began in 1972 with 20 booths showcasing local artists and artisans. Today, the Mountain Fair draws over 145 vendors poised to bring their unique and diverse homemade wares to town each summer. In addition to vendors, Mountain Fair features non-stop entertainment-both in live music and various forms of performing arts; a family-area called The Oasis which provides interactive, creative experiences for children; great food; friendly competitions that run the gamut from pie baking to wood splitting, and an amazing spirit. That spirit is best evidenced by the over 300 volunteers who come together to run the fair. Throughout the weekend, over 20,000 people pass through from across the state and all over the country! In our current times, herbal medicine and plant-based culture has re-emerged in many forms and I perceive it is in a major cycle of transformation. Many call it the ‘herbal renaissance’ and …
