In honor of the day, here’s an explanation and meditative reflection that’s well worth reading. It concludes:
Ulysses is a novel that celebrates home even as Leopold Bloom is estranged from it. Bloomsday is a day to celebrate Dublin if you are there, but home wherever you are. Even in the midst of pondering over banishment in Shakespeare, take this time to celebrate your home – whatever that may be.Happy Bloomsday to one and all!
