writing is spatial. 
we walk into a blog or website as if it is a room in a museum, and wander in or leave when we choose.
we write as if we're shifting blocks of concrete or plaster, or painting tones, and the space between thoughts, fingertips and what is inside the screen is a studio. 



'Synecdoche... names a part instead of the whole which includes it. Thus "sail" is taken for "ship" in the expression "a fleet of fifty sails" [...] Asyndeton is the suppression of linking words such as conjunctions and adverbs [...] In the same way, in walking it selects and fragments the space traversed; it skips over links and whole parts that it omits. From this point of view, every walk constantly leaps, or skips like a child, hopping on one foot. It practices the ellipsis of conjunctive loci.
In reality, these two pedestrian figures are related. Synecdoche expands a spatial element in order to make it play the role of a "more" (a totality) and take its place [...] Asyndeton, by elision, creates a "less", opens gaps in the spatial continuum, and retains only selected parts of it that amount almost to relics [...] Synecdoche makes more dense [...] Asyndeton cuts out [...] A space treated in this way and shaped by practices is transformed into enlarged singularities and separate islands.' 






'To practice space is thus to repeat the joyful and silent experience 
of childhood; it is in a place, to be other and to move toward the 
other.'






Fort/Da

walking because one has no place. saunter. sans terre

walking as a tactic. tactics lack their own place and are limited by 
the possibilities of the moment. what the tactic wins, it cannot 
keep. what the walk finds, it cannot keep, but instead passes by.





'In modern Athens, the vehicles of mass transportation are called
metaphorai. To go to work or come home, one takes a 'metaphor' 
- a bus or a train. 
Stories could also take this noble name: every day, they traverse
and organize places; they select and link them together; they 
make sentences and itineraries out of them. They are spatial
trajectories [...] 
In this respect, narrative structures have the status of spatial 
syntaxes [...] 
Every story is a travel story – a spatial practice.'
