The chaos is the system! :-P But yeah that’s the aspect of pen and paper
I miss the most. Digitally my stuff is pretty well organised, but I
just don’t have the same dexterity.

But also, is a nice, customised journal not a pen&paper Emacs?

There are sooooo beautiful!  I’m always nostalgic about the aesthetics
and the ergonomics of pen&paper, because they can be so much more
pleasant than anything digital.  I wish there was a way to bring that
beauty and comfort to digital land.  E-ink tablets/laptops in the
future, maybe?
