the puzzling persistence

there's something in the way we go running about collecting pieces of a puzzle.  there's always the daunting beginning of it all.  a space to start.  i find researching the perimeters of this part a satisfying, yet introductory option to explore.  discovering the limits inside and outside the box.  where they end most often leads to where they begin.  this may feed into a core or a heart of the puzzling state lying before you.  find the edge, form a focus around that perimeter.  lock in on those colorful parts and let the sparks fly.  the eye is a catalog of color that records your persistent attempts to match memories.  connect the stem of those memories to flower the budding of connecting pieces.  which may, scientifically speaking, happen faster than the flapping wings of an Anna's Hummingbird, the apparent "fastest animal in the world". 

maybe the more you move, the slower time turns?  maybe the faster time moves, the faster you burn too.  i guess you'll just have to keep churning through the barrage of a jigsaw collage, until you find that legendary piece of completion.  the last piece of a puzzle that has you humming like a bird.  the one you could never quite find, never quite place.  but the one you eventually found knowing it was always right, somewhere you weren't...
