happy bloomsday

some blooms from my back yard in honor of bloomsday!

"Open your eyes now. I will. One moment. Has all vanished since? If I open and am for ever in the black adiaphane. Basta! I will see if I can see.

See now. There all the time without you: and ever shall be, world without end."

I spent a lot of time re-reading Joyce when I was pregnant trying to find the perfect baby name. My dad got my name from Ulysses, "Erin, green gem of the silver sea."

But I never could pick one...although my Dad was quite persistent with Chimpden as he favorite.
