reading: The Bloomsday festival, which celebrates Joyce’s Ulysses, takes place in Dublin from 11 – 16 June. I’ve always wanted to read it, but never got past the first 20 pages or so. My new plan is to take an episode per year and read it that way. Starting this year, with episode 10 – “Wandering Rocks”, some of which takes place in the North Strand area close to where I live. This way, I figure I should finish Ulysses in 2034!!!
podcast: I’ve been at a conference in Luxembourg since Wednesday. I always download some podcasts to take on flights. Among the ones I downloaded for this trip was this episode of The Moth podcast recorded live at The Sydney Opera House.
