Art in everyday life

I love discovering art in everyday life. In Brattleboro, VT, there is lots of it. Mocha Joe'sis an institution there. Named for the cobbler Joe who used to inhabit an underground basement space on the main street, Mocha Joe's roasts their own coffee and ships it all over the world. The two chalk boards here show their drink lists - I was there one day with Julia when a young woman was lettering them. Aren't they lovely?

You've done so much on Brattleboro lately, why don't you feature its most famous citizen - the diner painter?

Just kidding.
