Oho -- this is really fun if you are an artist: Make a Snowflake
Here's my snowflake:
Reminds me of an antimacassar -- we should always remember that Macassar was the name of a hair-oil. Why should we remember this? Well, I'll tell you. Because if we don't hold on tight to the threads that run through civilisation, there will be nothing to hold it together. People will continue to say "antimacassar" for a while, then that will drop away... but there will always be things that aren't questioned, aren't understood, and which loop back to forgotten pieces of information. Does this matter? No, not unless you want to read.
