A Painful Case

I’m sitting on what may be the most beautiful beach in the world, trying desperately to avoid dropping my computer into the chasms dug in the sand by last night’s hatching turtles, and trying even more desperately to explain to you why it’s been so long since I’ve flooded your Eustachians.

But the beach is no place to explain these things, and Bloomsday’s no day for self-absorption. I’ll come back soon on something nominally resembling a schedule, but in the meantime, Happy Bloomsday and keep your ears clean.

I worry that the Irish government is going to revoke my passport someday if I don’t bone up more on my JJ. On the other hand, the great thing about having a lousy memory is that you’re constantly re-discovering things…..
