A snippet is just a crumb, a fleck, a granule or a mote of something: in this case it could be a wee tale from the past , a ha’penny of advocacy, a pinch of observation, a scrap of humour, a nugget of wisdom, a particle of commonsense, a patch of poetry, or a shard of light. The modest splinters and flakes of knowledge found here don’t bear comparison with the scads of stuff heaped in abundance elsewhere on the internet. Each morsel here has been carefully contrived. Just as the culinary arts now include the practice of ‘slow cooking’, this site welcomes mindful observation of detail and unhurried conversation.
This site was almost named ‘workouts’. Although, as the image below suggests, this name could have suggested a wide range of meanings, I thought it might be a distraction to those who only had in mind the calisthenic one.
