At this aforementioned dark juncture, the response to irrational self-appearance related thought was to introduce the mosaic to the fold. It was through this that the more likely analogy of jigsaws emerged.

The jigsaw: a complex collection of small pieces; some jagged, some smooth; some with slots, some with holes. Things piece together either through luck, assiduous effort, or by sheer coincidence. In the pursuit of ultimate happiness, the jigsaw must be completed. But pieces, like people, go missing, and, chameleon-like, they change shape. Maybe, irrespective of our efforts, the picture alters.

If we deem our life a jigsaw, we can only hope that nobody comes along, deems the effort a waste of time, and sweeps it all back into the box. Then we would lie broken, fragmented, lost in a confined abyss of darkness, hoping that someone will have the interest to start piecing the puzzle together again.

I was informed by a most-learned friend that the jigsaw was invented by a cartographer. The geometric and geographic combine again for the richness of art. Biographically and bio-critically, we might consider how we can Write off the Map. We do not need to be pieces in a box to be lost or found. Perhaps, on the other hand, the jigsaw is an implicit mirror, there to mask " as perhaps poetry does " what we dare not see in its explicit form. To stand on the edge of the land of Asset, and not even see the shores of Need on the horizon is a bleak foresight.
