June Sixteenth

Happy Bloomsday! ( a friend on facebook reminded me) and I have been thinking about this ever since. The sixteenth of June is the broad stage that the action from Joyce's Ulysses plays on, Leopold Bloom, Molly Bloom, and Stephen Daedalus...

June is so literary, like April and September. The mention of June makes me plunge into Clarissa Dalloway's ecstasy: "life; London; this moment of June. For it was the middle of June."

And here's a toast to my friend and co-worker Jessica, whose birthday it is today on this moment of June. And her middle name is June: Jessica June, Queen of the Moon.
