river trip update

hi my friends,

I'm really touched and delighted by this article about the river trip
in the New York Times:

I send greetings from the excellent town of Wabasha, MN, which was
once called Tipiota, meaning Many Teepees in the Dakota Sioux
language, for the large encampment that was once here on the shore of
Lake Pepin and the Mississippi River...

I hope your fall is starting out wonderfully!



Only if it's not likely to
Can the believed-in happen.

These are some sketches - experimental and strictly preliminary! - in which I've had a bash at 'curating' some, by now, very familiar river texts. I've used the tag 'layering' because I'm finding more and more to think about in the basic observation that the history of the Mississippi headwaters is richly layered with one layer often obscuring or obliterating another completely. I've gestured towards this idea here.
