Think you're escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home.
from Ulysses (1922) by James Joyce (1882-1941)
not only is u for ulysses (my planned blogabet u word) but u is also for ursula.
I was going to hold on to "u" until saturday or sunday since I'm currently away from home. but I received an unexpected email mentioning that october 21st is ursula le guin's 81st birthday! seems only right to push u up and pay tribute to two unique and unusual literary phenoms today!
ulysses has been on my brain recently and on my bucket list for years. a couple weeks ago I decided to undertake reading the book after receiving an invite to join a small cyber-bookgroup. my goal is to have this über-book finished by bloomsday 2011
