All that remains of my childhood

But the effort still to be made is great.  So many years will be spent searching, studying, classifying, before my life is secured, carefully arranged and labelled in a safe place – secure against theft fire and nuclear war – from whence it will be possible to take it out and assemble it at any point.  Then, being thus assured of never dying, I may finally rest.

(Boltanski, 2006, p. 25).
