absolutely one could travel through these works but my interest at the 
moment is in deleuze's works
why?  well, he has a style of writing that I am trying to get the 
particular flow of.  the logic he uses appeals to me.  his vocabulary.
the originary world he emits signs from, northern france, a milieux my 
family if from.  something i am trying to pick-up in deleuze.  
subconsciously of course.
