A New Year WIll Be
If 2022 sounds too much like 2020 two then one thing worth repeating would be the Bloomsday 2020 video A New Day Will Be.
For Bloomsday 2020, The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade produced this beautiful Bloomsday video compiled from videos submitted from different missions and embassies around the world.
Democratic presidential candidates Beto O'Rourke and Pete Buttigieg both make an appearance in the short video as does Madrid's Bloomsday Society founder Sara Cantó. Sadly, I didn't make the cut with my own submissions and I know hundreds of people if not thousands of people might have also submitted their own Joycean readings.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if The Department of Foreign Affairs could encourage the same sort of participation in The Groundhog Day Challenge?
