But also, the authors hope that this little book may serve as a catalyst to others to take time to revisit the times and places where they grew up. You may or may not want to write them down or record them on audio or video. Whatever you do, the authors believe that the mentalsnapshots that will come to mind will surprise you. Some will be sharp and clear as if taken by a twenty-?rst century digital camera. Others will be wrinkled and blurred as if carelessly stored in a neglected desk drawer. Whatever is recalled, in whatever condition, will lead not only to nostalgic recollection, but to an enriching evaluation of our lives and the values of our culture.
