Roaming the byways of literature


Talking is also part of literature

Literature was born out of talk

I am a reader and a writer. My aim on this blog is to post about literature.

There are books I love and a few that bore me (I won’t blog about those).

There are poems and stories I write (but I won’t blog about them very often).

Literature connects with daily life, has a place in society, has a mass of academic theory. I’ll write about these things occasionally.

From time to time I write down my observations of people and happenings I meet. I’ll include some of these – they are the raw material of all creative endeavour.

  1. Thank you kindly for dropping by my blog :)

  2. You would need an FB account :(

  3. Been a silent follower of your blog for sometime and started delurking recently :) The posts that I enjoy the most is about books and the Haikus. A few of us friends have a very vibrant book lovers page on FB, you might enjoy it as well. Do let me if you would be interested

    • Thank you so much, Wanderlustathome, for being a follower and for your comment. Thank you also for the information on the book lovers page. I would be interested but I don’t have a Facebook account – would I still be able to see it or do I have to be a member of FB?

    • Thank you so much for the compliment and the recognition. It is an honour coming form someone who does such a lovely blog as yours is. I accept with gratitude. It’ll take me a while to get together my list – there are so many wonderful blogs out there and they influence me and others in different ways.

  6. Hi, I was awarded my second Blog of the year 2012 award and am honor to help someone else on their way of receiving their 6 stars. http://wp.me/p28tjX-yH

  8. Congratulations, E A M, and thanks for your visit yesterday! I’m following you, but am not receiving your new posts, so I’m going to unfollow, then follow again and we’ll see how WP reacts! :)

    • Thank you for this comment. I’ve not heard of this following glitch before. I hope your unfollow/follow works. I haven’t done a new post for a few days due to a lot of things happening in my life (nice things like friends coming, but they still take me away from blogging).

  9. Thank you very much for stopping by and following! Your support means the world to me :)


  10. Hi, thank you for stopping by :)

  11. Well your Botany degree has given us all life with the oxygen we breath..kudos to you for understanding the basics of existence.

  12. Hi E A M: Thank you for commenting on my SCIFI post Oxygen Plant Life Pollution found on www. hcurci.wordpress.com.

  13. Thank you for viewing my post about Outer Space Online Store at http://www.spacenoodles.com/shop.asp

  14. Thank you for reading my post about Hubble being replaced

  15. Hi,
    I finally worked on the The Commenter Award. Please find it at this http://wp.me/p28tjX-iu. Thank you so much for the honor.

    Hugs, Kim

  16. I totally agree. The Hubble has given us magnifient pictures of the universe and now it is going to treated like a piece on orbiting space junk and let crash to oblivion in the Pacific Ocean..

    I’m sure they don’t want to spend the money to go up there and bring it back..and I think they should.

    • I thought there was a campaign for them to do just that. What became of it? I think they could have an international appeal to fundraise. Hubble means a lot to a lot of people.

      • I have not heard of a Hubble money collection to save it but I hope you are right.. can you tell me where I can find info on the “Save The Hubble” I would like to read it and make a contribution… I can’t imagine NASA will let it be destroyed. Thank you.


      • Some time ago in a news report about replacing Hubble there was a para about some people wanting to start a campaign.
        I just googled ‘save the Hubble campaign’ and got loads of news reports and other mentions.

      • I’ll check out google and I will write to NASA also maybe they have some info..if they respond I’ll send it to you.

      • Thank you. I look forward to hearing what they say.

      • Went to google per your tip asked for SAVE HUBBLE clicked on:
        Mission to Save Hubble Could Put Astronauts at Risk
        Hubble wont be replaced till 2017 so we have some time.

      • Thank you for the information. I’ll keep an eye on the campaign.

  17. Thank you for viewing my post …. Universe sends us pictures of itself…

    The great Hubble Telescope is a library of of pictures showing us the very foundation of our existence…what more profound can that be.

    The Hubble Telescope will be replaced by the James West Telescope at which time the Hubble will lose orbital configuration and plunge in to the Pacific Ocean..but a library to continue with better and bigger response.

  20. Thank you for reading my post “Racing Jaguar Sports Car in Ancient Roman Chariot Races”.
    I had great fun writing the story and my imagination went flying to Ancient Rome 79AD and I became the main character in the story imersing myself in the rigor of the day with danger, intrigue, romance, and great adventure.

    I have published a series of Outer Space Coloring Books to teach children the great Universe that has given them life; you can read their synopsis at http://www.spacenoodles.com/shop.asp


  29. Happy to connect with you on wordpress but I’m not very adept at the computer. Wanted to get a limerick competition going (for fun) but no-one else knows I’m here!

    • I find it helps to browse around other peoples’ blogs and leave comments on the ones that you like. Then they know you’re around and have tastes in common with them.
      I like reading limericks but I’ve never written one. I suspect it’s harder than it looks.

  30. wow… i like what you have turned your blog into, your poems are awesome, intriguing and informative. very creative, keep it up. looking forward to reading more of your work
