I started this blog as a neophyte flailing wildly around on the internet, without any particular objective or direction. I rambled about daily life, about books, about food, existential mumbling, assorted roadtrips, miscellaneous lists…
A lot has changed in the four years since I started this journey. I’m still a mumbler – no hope of ever getting over that! – but at least I mumble with a purpose, now.
So, salutations. I am M.R. Graham, author and academe, lover of literature and learning.

…hints and excerpts of my fiction.
…scholarly musings centered on literature, history, culture, folklore, and education.
…the more interesting tidbits I uncover in my research.
