   “The nostalgic landscapes of ‘Christmas card houses’ on newly fallen snow evoke joyful comforting moments of long ago days. The drudgery on the other side of ‘comfort and joy’ is forgotten…as well as our prior generations’ ways of managing things that now would be impossible to recreate.

Once again two things: (1) There are hidden delights in compulsive journaling, the laying down in nonelectronic print impressions that one does not want to fade away–buried under the nonessential details of everyday life (or erased by EMP). And (2) once again, we follow another compulsion: Providing another useful way to carry on our forever habit of footnoting, so that if one wishes to truly learn in a helter-skelter, climate-changing flood of words, we can pin down where certain data comes from.
