    Wow, the Wake would be wonderful to listen to! But, yeah, I understand…very crazy making, especially if you don’t quite understand the Irish accent and Irish words.

    Really, you think so, Carole!? Damn, I can almost hear a chorus of “don’t encourage the crazy lady.”

    […] you’re of a more solitary nature, why not give Miette’s reading of An Encounter (from “Dubliners”) a listen, then tuck into some fried kidneys, a pint of plain, and a […]

    Miette, you celebrated Bloomsday a day early–and I’m reacting a day late. But close enough–it’s all in the ball park, as it were–or maybe not. And whose park are we talking about anyway –and whose balls indeed! I wouldn’t mind at all hearing even a wee few pages (or many more if you so chose) of the Wake. Your intuitive and melodious reading manner makes everything you choose to bless us with always a pleasure!

    Ian, Carl, you’re making it difficult to resist…. I can’t promise I’d stop after a couple pages.

    And Carl, I -started- celebrating early, true, but I didn’t stop on the Eve: It was a certifiable Bloomsday Bender around these parts. Glad to hear from you– send me some writing! Feed me!

    xo to all.

    a p.s. I have never found anything about the Wake previously or beginning again…crazy- making. On the contrary, whether reading it silently to myself or reading it aloud to a live audience–as I did on one occasion in volunteering to read an assigned twenty pages each reader was given in a Wake marathon reading– I thoroughly enjoyed these Waking experiences. For me, the Irish accent came quite naturally–probably because of my extensive academic exposure to a whole slew of Irish Jesuits! But that slew is a whole other stew, and quite another story as well…

    Happy belated Bloomsday to all!
