Today is the thinking man's (as opposed to the drinking man's) St. Patrick's Day, commemorating the 24-hour period in which the events in James Joyce's Ulysses take place. June 16 was also the day that Joyce and Nora, his wife-to-be, had their first date strolling around Dublin. The book is filled with musical references. Maybe this will be the year I finally get through the entire thing cover to cover.
