I have experience with notes on paper, soon discarded; notebooks destined for dusty boxes; failed attempts at digital note-taking, note-saving, and other ephemeral content; information collection without review or value. I began gathering notes in [Obsidian](https://obsidian.md) in February 2022. It has been over a year and a half now. Wish me luck as I continue trying to make this work as a personally valuable collection of records, references, random thoughts, and purposeful creation, too. I hope you find some of these notes useful. Some notes will appear and disappear as I create, evaluate, and curate. I do not publish every note, so some links will return an `HTTP 404, file not found` error. If you are starting your Obsidian vault, please see my [recommendation](https://github.com/philoserf/obsidian-starter) before adopting a starter project following some experienced TfT guru's way. Learn from the gurus, but make your note system your own.[^1] ![[assets/sig.jpg#circle]] P.S. Oh. And write to me if you find something interesting or curious and worthy of comment.
