Random morning thoughts

What is a world? Jean-Luc Nancy proposes it is a "totality of meaning." Sliced worlds be. Mountain world. As far as eye can see world? As far as I can mean world. Can find meaning? Glacial till world? Moraine world? World out my window which is pine, steel, lumin, wind, fringe of curtain. How does time fold into world? Worlds as bumper cars. Worlds bashing. Worlds and with them land mines and long, wicks. Wish for a benign world. World of quilts. Wish for a world of good intentions. "We watched the pieces go to pieces," Mary Burger writes near the end of Sonny. Is pieces all we have? Are pieces all we can expect?
