TOP V. WEEKEND PICKS (11/3-11/9)

November 3, 2016 · Print This Article

Every thought in our head is just like every other thought in someone else’s, fleeting and imagined. We can and will be incomplete together, through the reproducible action of sharing the stories of ourselves with one another. Flowing streams of narrative, of fragments of things that are past, and the things that we imagine the future to be made of while standing beside something that’s demanding, or soft, or a little bit unkempt. The vulnerability of our imaginings is tidal.  A consequence of our humanity as it is indulged, begrudged, sacrificed, and savored.

E pluribus unum, out of many, one. The one is made up of all things, and all things issue from the one. Here it is the group, the collective, the hobbled together bunches that make up something else entirely. More than the sum of their parts, it’s 2 + 2 = 5 in the Top V.
