This is web page as palimpsest. There are frameworks and frames, codes and languages. There are memories. This grows up from roots, undulating between its old habits and something new. This is palimpsest as web page.

Despite the wishes and fictions of many, Ctrl+N does not subvert or save us from the past, (or the future, for that matter). It does not impossibly create a new blank page.

Only more Word can cover the past or future (and what is the matter of time?) or make white space white. We may forget, but the Page does not.

We cannot make new. We only read the words already there. But the eye strains, the vision blurs. Even still we strive. Until the cows come home.

Reach for the offing of the page and present it to the light.

Welcome back to S/WORD.
