Eclectic Ephemera

What is this?

Think of a musty sheaf of old papers lying on the floor in a forgotten corner of some dusty old library. That’s the kind of pointless pile of documents I want to make here. These are miscellaneous scans that I have made of papers that I have, generally things that are or were important to me in some way, or that I collected for some reason, though sometimes they’re just stuff that happened to come along on my life’s journey slotted somewhere between the pages of a book.

Ephemera is described as a piece of collectible memorabilia, generally paper-based, that isn’t meant to have a lifespan beyond its immediate or short-term purpose, things like tickets, maps, postcards, flyers, and such. I already have categories for some of these things, but it still is a nice word to describe an “everything else” sort of page.

So, this page is dedicated to miscellaneous scans, and I expect its contents to change now and then — I’ve already split off things from here to move to other pages a couple of times, and there’s a good chance that if something else threatens to overwhelm this table with entries, or obviously could be in a special category of its own along with many other scans, I might eventually split it off from this table into its own section as well, either on the main Table of Contents page or as a sub-page within my collections page.

These are the different shelves in my personal library (and they all go off to different webpages):

ට  Shelf 1: My Diary Entries — for my life/travel blog posts.
ට  Shelf 2: Winter Night Library — for scans of books, booklets, newspapers, magazines, etc.
ට  Shelf 3: Life Through A Mailbox — for scans of things put in my physical mailbox, largely ads, brochures, newsletters, etc.
ට  Shelf 4: The Memo Bank — for short-form writing, primarily scraps of papers, notes, memos, school worksheets, etc.
ට  Shelf 5: Jumbled Letters — for long-form writing and digital documents, essays, fiction, chat logs, etc.
ට  Shelf 6: Eclectic Ephemera — for miscellaneous scans that aren’t in any other category. (You are here)
ට  Shelf 7: Shelves of Odd Curios — for set collections of photos and scans centered around a certain theme.
ට  Shelf 8: My Dream Diary — for my personal dream diary entries.

As a note, while these documents will largely be .jpg or .png scans, if the name of a picture file ends in -scaled.jpg or -scaled.png, that’s WordPress doing its magic to generate a smaller version of the picture file, and if you want to see the actual full-sized picture for some reason, just open the same URL in a new browser tab/window without the -scaled part of the filename and it should generate the full version of the file. For example, filename-scaled.jpg > filename.jpg. This generally applies to the rest of my blog too.
