Old man river

Francis recommended this reading last week:

“He don’t plant ‘tatos
Don’t plant cotton
Them that plants them is soon forgotten
But old man river he just keep rolling along”

connection, heterogeneity, multiplicity, asignifying rupture, cartography and decalcomania……and more:

“The middle is by no means an average; on the contrary, it is where things pick up speed. Between things does not designate a localizable relation going from one thing to the other and back again, but a perpendicular direction, a transversal movement that sweeps one and the other away, a stream without beginning or end that undermines its bank and picks up speed in the middle. ”
