Bloomsday - twenty years on.
15-JUN-2010

Bloomsday - twenty years on.

'...and yes I said yes I will Yes.'
As Molly Bloom said, I said 'yes' this day 20 years ago.
Bloomsday, Italia 90 and our wedding day are linked memories
for me as World Cup fever had gripped Ireland the summer
we got married. A dear friend gave me Joyce's collected works
for a wedding present, although 20 years later, I still haven't
got round to reading Ulysses,
In some ways the twenty years seems like a lifetime
ago, at other times it seems to have gone by in the flash
of an eye.
Will catch up with commenting tomorrow as we have
some celebrating to do!

Belated congratulations to you. What a wonderful photo. My wife and I read one novel together every summer and eleven summers it was "Ulysses" which we both enjoyed immensely. A veritable treasure trove. I am sure you will enjoy it. Enjoy your celebration too!

Congratulations as well; nice use of the rose as a prop, and the background was well chosen given the theme.
