Continuous grass stalk line
each stalk pushed into the wider hollow of another
two thin ends joined by pushing both ends into a short length of thicker stalk
pegged to ground and tree with thorns

Diary: 2nd - 10th Oct
The week has been successful -
I have made work as usual
- yet work done was good -
grass stalk line, bird shit on
leaves - beautiful. In a
way I have used the situation
of people to provoke me.
"The young güeros had pulled to a piece of high ground and swung down and they stood with the horse and watched the slow pale chaos drift west with the sun leaving the ground behind them smoking gently and the last cries of the riders and the last moans of the cattle drifting away into the deep blue silence of the evening."
That’s a typical gem of a sentence found on nearly every page of this magical book.
