Sticks and stones have made me smarter/ it's words that cut me under my armour 'The new. The newer newest. The newly come, no Novian but one. The newer branch of the Novian stem. No Novian but another comes to ruin you. Save yourself from that, if you think you can.' - The Sibyl at Delphi, to Drusus Novius, in Rome Burning by Sophia McDougall.
Far from my home/ is the country I have reached I'm Ronni, a PhD student, book-reviewer, ASNaC, sraffie, Obernetter and dreamer. Above all things, I am a reader. This blog is a mixture of journal-style entries about life, meta about books, TV series, music, films and internet culture, social justice, memes and linkspam.
I write about exile, identity and origins. I feel this is significant.
