Amen to that. I personally don't see language as having limits. It's there for me to use at my behest. Hence, my self-conscious breaking of the rules of grammer (e.g. I always write "me and The Bean". I cannot imagine "The Bean and I" as something that I would say. It does not follow my personal rhythm or sentiment. Likewise my use of fragments. Such as the one I just wrote. Indeed, text is simply a medium to exploit in order to fulfill our own creative and philosphical desires. Plus by breaking the rules we weaken the structure and limits that are imposed on us from ridiculous outside forces, many of which are now (and for the most part always have been) obsolete.

that the fragment just might be a whole of things

hooray for smashing syntax--

and of course no less for personal rhythm, various enactments of and actings on desire, text as locus for encounter...
