Everything old is new again.  Oral tradition is alive and well in the 21st century; the new paradigm is the audio book.

Just as in reading a book, having one read to you, opens a door to another world.  Spoken stories may have improved since Homer told tales but telling and re-telling of stories, before pen, paper, and Gutenberg’s press, is the origin of quality.  Audio books tell tales and add pleasure to boring daily labors with new adventures of new-old stories.

There is also an added dimension to life; i.e.  the exercise of one’s mind and memory about history, science, and art.  The world is wide, time is short, and experience is fleeting.  Writing about audio books offers exploration of the world in compressed time; with a vicarious experience that may stay in one’s mind forever.

Living in a city, and limited travels, are part of the origin of this blogosphere adventure but Las Vegas and a few excursions are minuscule parts of experience offered by books.

Recalling  experience in essays  is a pleasure to the writer.  It is hoped–this writer’s pleasure entertains or enlightens some readers.
