Do you know Epigramman?

Epigramman

Unusual Hubbers, Unusual Hubs

I suppose that as a Hub Pages writer we all came here thinking we were different and had something special to offer, only to find out that there were many hubbers who wrote about what we were planning to write about.

Wow, what a nonsensical bit of jargon that first sentence was...

Let me start over: I joined Hub Pages thinking that I was unique. I thought that I could offer something no one else could. I thought that I was different.

We are all different, in that our perspective is not the same as someone else's, but other than the tone of our voice, we are much the same as a dozen other hubbers. I want to help people; Many hubbers want to help people. I want to make the world a better place. This is also a common goal. I want to entertain and enlighten you; well of course you have already been enlightened by someone much better at this than I...

There are many hubbers of many styles:

Some have things to sell, some have stories to tell

Some will walk a mile, and others make you smile,

Some will show you pics, while others will throw sticks,

Hubbers to educate, and others to postulate.

There are religious ones, and righteous too,

Environmentalists, ecologists, evolutionists abound,

If you use the hub hopping tool, never know what will come around.

Some may poke fun at me, others may scoff at you,

There are scientists, nurses, Psychiatrists, and more

There are  poets, and chefs and mothers galore

There are musicians and there are novelists too

So having been through all of that, has Epigramman found you?

Epigramman found me

If Epigramman hasn't found you yet, don't worry, I believe he has a mission. That he found me has been a delight. I would not have found him if he hadn't left me a comment on one of my hubs.

I look at my daily hub mail from the editor, telling me who has been published, and I look for Epigramman. His hubs are often short, just a few lines. Most of the time it is a poem. More often than not they seem to have multiple meanings. 

It's like reading a mystery and knowing you have the answer, but getting to the last page to see if you are right... Well that's why you finish the book.

I am writing to introduce you to Epigramman. I don't know where he came from, but I do know I can't get enough of reading these hubs. Every time I read one, I realize, less is more, and laughter is everything. So without further ado, the RSS below will take you to his hubs.

Helping Mothers and Others

If you would like to earn tangible residual income each month within a year, please contact me. You will be making a commitment to help others.

If you need help with anything from coping to writing please feel free to contact me as well. I do not charge for my knowledge. Just tired of seeing everyone taking advantage of others. Contact me (Faybe Bay) via HubPages through the link at the above right.

Have a great Day, thanks for reading, and if you like my writing please help me by rating me up, and sharing my page by clicking below.

Faybe Bay - I must say Epi found me as well. . and ever since his arrival here on Hupages, whenever I need a good giggle he is the one I turn to .. for his style is unique and his take on things is just extra special .. nice of you to spread a little Hub love. . especially to one who is so full of talent and love!

I've brushed shoulders with him, read some of his hubs and he's generously commented on some of mine. I appreciate your highlighting him, Faybe!

Your hub doing so is excellent too. You're so right - none of us is totally unique, yet each brings a unique perspective to what we write and as we comment on common human concerns.

Actually it's what is most attractive to me about HubPages: - that there ARE so many bright, interesting folks here and so few lurkers and hangers-oners who fail to contribute. Everyone here has something to say and to contribute - and most do it so well!

So many online places are half-asleep! LOL Not here!

Hello Wavegirl and Nellieanna! I am so glad that Epigramman has impressed you as well. I have to say I owe at least one smile each day to him! It is not difficult to spread the Hub Love in a case such as this. I am so glad you both stopped by to comment. I will be adding a couple of pictures that he sent me.

@Nellieanna, you are right about Hub Pages, never a dull moment around here! We all are given a place to use our voice to its fullest and we do. I love it here.

Hi Faybe! He found me yesterday and we are now mutual followers-I really enjoy his 'joie de vivre!'

He does get around! I can't help but adore that quality in him as well. It's getting to the point I just smile at the thought of his name. Must be some subliminal smiley spell... ;)

I call him e'man. He surprised me when he left a comment on one of my poems about how much he was laughing after reading it. I promised him I would stop in to see some of his hubs, and now that you've helped make that trip a little easier, that's where I'm headed. Thanks for the directions Faybe.

Faybe Bay 6 years ago from Florida Author

I am glad to be of assistance. He makes me smile, every day but some of his poetry is sad as well. I hope I have not given the impression that he doesn't have a melancholy side. :)

I have had the pleasure of meeting epigramman and his cat. I think it's his mission to move around the hubs, making everyone feel special...which is no bad thing.


Faybe Bay profile image

Faybe Bay 6 years ago from Florida Author

I think so too, and you are right, it is a good thing to have someone going around making us smile and feel special. He does make me feel very special.

Thank you Epigramman, your photo is definitely a fine point of introduction! No one can resist a man who knows how to treat a beautiful cat properly. I am lucky enough to know that you have two beautiful animals to take such good care of!

Faybe Bay 6 years ago from Florida Author

Marijana, it is sweet of you to stop and meet my friend, Epigramman! I warn you, he can be quite addictive, sort of like chocolate and chips. Sometimes sweet and at other times tart, but always making you reach for another, is our Epigramman!

To thank you is not enough - so I am taking you out for dinner in my hometown of Mars!!!

Yes I am back to enjoy the benefits of knowing someone like you - so nice here too - can I stay for awhile?

Why not you and I have a picnic here - I brought a basket with wine and cheese and bread and cold cuts - we can sit in the lush hinterlands and watch the world go by. And oh yes - I brought a single long stemmed rose for you - put it between your teeth and we will tango the night away.....


Faybe Bay profile image

Faybe Bay 6 years ago from Florida Author

I might need someone to teach me to Tango... I do love picnics though. Have I shown you my lounge? It is a place for friends to gather and meet. The comments are on reverse, so the latest comment is always on top, and there is a Kate Bush song over there, for you.

I always come by here daily to admire my 'monument' and pay tribute to you also ....... hope all is well and needless to say I miss you when you're not around - and that, madam, is just the plain and simple facts!


Faybe Bay profile image

Faybe Bay 6 years ago from Florida Author

You are so sweet! I fear you write much faster than I could ever read the hubs, but I am trying to keep up! I have been in hiding since my last work. Not hiding from people, but from myself. It is only the comments that force me out or my cave. I am a hermit right now. I will break free of it sooner or later, but when I let out that much of me, it is hard for me to 'visit' so to speak. I get second thoughts and third guesses going on in my head. It's all very negative when that happens, and it takes me a while to get myself back to normal.

It is most kind of you to stop by, I don't dread hearing from you. I bet that sounds lovely, but what I mean is you go to the mail box and find it overflowing, you close one eye as you open the unmarked envelope, sure it is a debt you owe, and find it's a bonus instead. I see I have a comment and I find it's the bonus of a comment from you!

Big Hugs, Faye

Hi Epigramman! I am still recovering from the dentist. maybe you could write about dental woes! :)

Thank you for all of your kind words and e-mails. I have school tomorrow and that is why I have been scarce, in addition to the extraction/deep cleaning treatment at the dentist.

I am sorry I have been away, Epigramman... I lost a friend in the real world on Thursday, he was younger than me! I guess in the end it was a stroke. He was in the hospital, and they told him to stay in bed, but he didn't listen.

I went to a birthday party on Friday, for a friend who is 81 now... Odd how one dies so young and another lives so long. She says it is all up to us, and that she has just decided to stay healthy. If she has symptoms she goes to the Dr, she doesn't just wait to see if she feels better. She doesn't go to the Dr if she feels fine. I love her, she is so wise. How many times do we neglect our own health, waiting to see if we will feel better soon, only to find that we could have gotten better if we just went to the Dr when we had the first symptoms...

Faybe Bay profile image

Faybe Bay 6 years ago from Florida Author

Hi Epigramman. I am sorry I am still not myself. I am just tired in the real world and it makes the "Cyber-world" much less appealing when I am this tired. I must learn to cut my day into little bites and save a bite of time for Hub Pages, but mostly I am just defeated. I like to help people, it's what I came here for. There are writers here who still write about the helpful ones as if we are some kind of psychotic bunch and I can't take that. I was never here for attention, I was here to pay attention to others. I have found that some find that to be "evil" They warn people not to trust anyone who wants to help you, and not to trust anyone who reveals themselves because they are all liars, or crazy people. I can't be mocked and ridiculed all the time. And then they tell their little hub stories about the people that I help, and that I am an idiot for believing etc... This is not a place for me. I hope I find a place for me, but this isn't it. If I want to survive in Hub Pages I have to be someone or something I am not, a salesman. I have nothing I want to sell.

Hi Epigramman, this laptop is giving me lots of grief or I'd say more. The keyboard doesn't always accept the letters, and backspace doesn't work at all. I foresee a return trip to tke it back! lol, Talk to you later.

Enjoyed reading your intro and I was fortunate to stumble upon Sir EM the other day when I hub-hopped. I read a poem of his and left a comment then he reciprocated. Being curious I then made my way over to his profile and dipped into his collection of poems. What a treasure trove of delights on offer. I've only read a handful so far but I've been very impressed with his masterpieces that he creates. Truly wonderful words he scribes and sometimes with a twist of delightful humour. Tasty morsels indeed! Thanks for sharing this hub with us.

Hi Richtwf! I agree on all counts. Once tasting his flavor of humor one becomes addicted. I'm glad you have found the multifaceted Epigramman!

You know I miss our talks. I go and post a reply or comment where you have been and I never know if you've seen it or not. I remember running back and forth between this hub and yours, commenting to each other. You had all the girls fighting over you. I'm glad you have that on FB, I'll look and see if you're over there. I need some advice about my latest project.
