“Carl” the Fog

Just a plea, to resist the branding ™ of nature, including the mysterious Fog of San Francisco.

@KarlTheFog (Twitter account) is fun, in a trivial way, but a wholly inept (and in-apt) branding of our city’s fog.

But if you insist, or can’t resist, may I suggest, as more apt (or ept):

“Carl” the Fog.

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

—”Carl” Sandburg

One thought on ““Carl” the Fog”

  1. What a beautiful photo, Randy. I agree fog doesn’t have a human name, but if people must name it, Carl it should be.
