... the poorest places in the US. Clarksdale is our destination today, we are only talking short distances, about an hour and a half out of Memphis. Along the very straight road as far as you can see, in all directions, there are crop fields, at this time of year either just planted or just coming up. Cotton is still the number one crop in Misissisippi, followed by soybeans and corn for feed. It is perfectly flat, and windy, so quite dusty. Rain ...

I'm enjoying the book on many levels, as an excellent travelogue (bonus for me as he's travelling to many of the places I want to go), an insight into a very sad, distraught person trying to come to terms with what has happened and deal with ...

... humam experience - love, pain, joy, suffering, sex, longing, sorrow, death, all that is intrinsically human. The rythym, lyrics, beat. So visceral. Anyway, I'm in Clarksdale, MS, and went to a juke joint called Red's to see Watermelon Slim. Just the man, his slide guitar on a table, harmonica, another Aussie string instrument (can't remember what it's called) and his voice. Great show, he's funny, smart, speaks French, wicked slide ...
