I Swear I Saw This

Drawings in Fieldwork Notebooks, Namely My Own

I Swear I Saw This records visionary anthropologist Michael Taussig’s reflections on the fieldwork notebooks he kept through forty years of travels in Colombia. Taking as a starting point a drawing he made in Medellin in 2006—as well as its caption, “I swear I saw this”—Taussig considers the fieldwork notebook as a type of modernist literature and the place where writers and other creators first work out the imaginative logic of discovery. Notebooks mix the raw material of observation with reverie, juxtaposed, in Taussig’s case, with drawings, watercolors, and newspaper cuttings, which blend the inner and outer worlds in a fashion reminiscent of Brion Gysin and William Burroughs’s surreal cut-up technique. Focusing on the small details and observations that are lost when writers convert their notes into finished pieces, Taussig calls for new ways of seeing and using the notebook as form. Memory emerges as a central motif in I Swear I Saw This as he explores his penchant to inscribe new recollections in the margins or directly over the original entries days or weeks after an event. This palimpsest of afterthoughts leads to ruminations on Freud’s analysis of dreams, Proust’s thoughts on the involuntary workings of memory, and Benjamin’s theories of history—fieldwork, Taussig writes, provokes childhood memories with startling ease. I Swear I Saw This exhibits Taussig’s characteristic verve and intellectual audacity, here combined with a revelatory sense of intimacy. He writes, “drawing is thus a depicting, a hauling, an unraveling, and being impelled toward something or somebody.” Readers will exult in joining Taussig once again as he follows the threads of a tangled skein of inspired associations.

An experience unparalleled! Before leaving for Colombia, David was content with his life and his routine. By his own admission he is just an average middle-class guy with brown hair, boy-next-door looks and height, who lives in a traditional 3-bedroom, home in the suburbs of Houston, Texas. David didn't "need" a wife. His decision to go on an international romance tour was based on the premise that at the very least, he'd see a beautiful city in a foreign country and have some wonderful travel memories. At most, if fortunate he'd find someone he truly cared for and could continue a relationship after the tour. Little did he know life was about to get very interesting! In David's case, he can proudly state that from the moment he met his wife, he knew that they had a very special chemistry, un-matched by anything he had experienced in his life. And while David only spoke a small amount of Spanish, and Cristina spoke some English, they found that romance and chemistry are an international language all their own. Encounter Your Destiny is a wonderful inspiring novel about true love that intertwines the books author, David O'Dell and his whirlwind romance and marriage to Cristina as well as the inner workings of the romance tour he attended. The novel puts you in the footsteps of David as he takes you behind the scenes - From David's life before going on the romance tour to when David meets his lovely wife Cristina to their wedding, he takes you through the actual international romance tour, from the moment you arrive in Colombia until the day you depart, and the filming of the romance tour by a documentary television series. Bonus Section: Your Guide to a Successful International Romance Tour; You'll learn how the process works in detail, what to expect and what you should do - and not do - when you take one of these remarkable tours. What the tour agency does, what you should expect from a reputable tour agency. You'll learn about the "Socials" - the key to meeting and discovering how to interact with the ladies. What you can expect and what you can do to ensure a positive experience for yourself. You'll also gain valuable advice on what you should do regarding dating, what to do while you're dating women in another country, and what you need to do once you return home.
