    Greg, it's a little late but it isn't a single "yes" short: you're on the Front Page of Utata today, along with some words from this weird dude who wrote books or something.

    I love this.
  • greg 8y

    Meera, how sweet of you. Thanks so much. This was such a surprise. And don't you love the way reading James Joyce makes you feel a wee bit intoxicated?
  • jody miller 8y

    Not really intoxicated. Just flustered and a wee bit dizzy....the room is spinning....wait, maybe intoxicated. :)
    You deserved the front page with this one, Greg. And Meera, that text was genius.
  • J 8y

    I remember that shirt. And the duck. Never seen the leaves before in my life.
  • meeralee 8y

    Oh dammit, it says "Text by Meera Sethi," doesn't it? Yeah, I wish. It's all Joyce, all the time. I'll add a note for the unsuspecting.

    I still love this.
  • jody miller 8y

    Meera, I meant the pointers in the text....but of course you had to use the Joyce. That's the only thing to put with that image!
  • meeralee 8y

    I didn't at all mean to imply you were unsuspecting, it just made me go look at the post and realize I hadn't posted an attribution. :-) So thank you.

    i'm italian.
    i remember reading the end of joyce's ulisses in front of my schoolmates, years ago (never been much of a good student). it was an improvised examination by my loving teacher, who would not simply let me "pass", but wanted to tell me that yes, i could even read a woman's breath without knowing what i was reading, yes, i could simply do what ever i wanted in my life, yes, it was just there.
    yes. And i remember the exaltation that fluent prose gave me, young, male, eternal, stumbling upon endless meanings of unknown words in a language that i've loved since that moment, giving voice to an imaginary female, becoming, for those gorgeous twenty minutes, one with all mankind...yes, it might sound weird, but there is so much hope in those words of remembrance...
    yes...

    thank you.

    Greg, I see this made Flickr's Interesting page. Congrats!
  • Adam Graham 8y

    Very nice. This actually might make me pick up Ulysses sometime. I think that means you accomplished something.

    - seen on Utata front page
  • Lori Hale Williams 8y

    wonderful greg! congrats on the front page!

    i saw this image a couple of days ago (or was a week... i loose track) and its been bumping around in my head, resurfacing now and then. its really compelling, but I feel that I can't describe it in words as completely as james joyce or you do on a regular basis. but i like it.
  • caryn74 8y

    nicely done, Greg ...
  • real name taken 8y

    wow, very nice.
  • Joan Hill 8y

    swooning again, as I so often do with Greg's images.
    sigh.
  • Mohanraj Kolathapilly 8y

    yes!

    actually, if you titled it, "His heart was going like mad" it becomes a wonderful 6 word story.
