Happy Easter.

Easter LoveOn Easter we celebrate love,
love coming down from heaven,
love blanketing the earth
in a transforming embrace;
unique and infinite love,
giving more than we can imagine
for us, to cleanse our sin,
a perfect sacrifice, Lamb of God,
the walking, talking Word.
He is teacher, role model, friend,
this God in human form,
dying, then rising from the dead,
proving all who believe
will also rise
to have eternal life, with Him,
Lord of all.
Oh, Happy, Happy Easter!

23.05.2015. James  Joyce. Martello Tower. Sandycove.

Sandycove (Irish: Cuas an Ghainimh) is an area of Dublin, Ireland. It is a popular seaside resort.

The writer James Joyce  lived for a week as a young man in the Martello Tower, The most famous Tower in Dublin is Tower No. 11, in Sandycove Co. Dublin. It is known as Joyce’s Tower, a Museum dedicated to one of Irelands most talented authors James Joyce. He stayed in the tower in Sandy cove, and it is believed that James Joyce got inspiration there for one of his most famous works “Ulysses“. The museum is open to the public during the summer months, a must-see on the list of top Dublin attractions connected to James Joyce. Martello Tower is situated beside the Forty foot bathing place at Sandycove. The opening scene of Joyce' Ulysses  is set in this tower.

 It now hosts a small Joycean museum, open all year round Bloomsday is celebrated in Sandycove in Joyce's honour on the 16th of June every year.
Martello towers, sometimes known simply as Martellos, are small defensive  forts, that were builtt across the British Empire during the 19th century, and not only. Most were coastal forts.  Along the whole Adriatic coast we can see this tipical tower.

Martello towers were inspired by a round fortress, part of a larger Genoese defence system, at  Mortella (Myrtle) Point in Corsica. The designer was Giovan Giacomo Paleari Fratino (el Fratin),[1] and the tower was completed in 1565.
Since the 15th century, the Corsicans had built similar towers at strategic points around the island to protect coastal villages and shipping from North African pirates. The towers stood one or two storeys high and measured 12–15 m (39–49 ft) in diameter, with a single doorway five metres off the ground that one could access only via a ladder which the occupants could remove.[2]
Local villagers paid for the towers and watchmen, known as torregiani, who would signal the approach of unexpected ships by lighting a beacon fire on the tower's roof. The fire would alert the local defence forces to the threat. Although the pirate threat subsequently dwindled, the Genovese built a newer generation of circular towers (the Genoese towers), that warded off later foreign invasions.  
(from Internet. I wish you a nice surfing.)  But make a nice walk all around our Pula; from Premantura till Peroj and Barbariga you will enjoyed in seesitting of Martello towers even in Peroj, on the beach Bođinka.

The James Joyce Tower was one of a series of Martello towers built to withstand an invasion by Napoleon and now holds a museum devoted to the life and works of James Joyce, who made the tower the setting for the first chapter of his masterpiece, Ulysses.
Beautifully located eight miles south of Dublin on the coast road, this tower is the perfect setting for a museum dedicated to Joyce, a writer of international renown who remains, world-wide, the writer most associated with Dublin.
Joyce's brief stay here inspired the opening of his great novel Ulysses. The gun platform with its panoramic view, and the living room inside the tower are much as he described them in his book.

The museum's collection includes letters, photographs, first and rare editions and personal possessions of Joyce, as well as items associated with the Dublin of Ulysses.
Ulysses was set on 16th June 1904. On Bloomsday, 16th June, the museum will be open from 8am-6pm for readings and celebrations.

Dubliners is a collection of fifteen short stories by James Joyce. first published in 1914. They form a   naturalistic  depiction of    of Irissh middle class life in and around Dublin in the anda around Dublin in the early years of the 20th
The stories were written when when Irish naionalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences a life-changing self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel   Ulysses.  The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence and maturity.

I wish that Pula will be elected  to European Capital of Culture.

 Živé naj vsi naródi,
ki hrepené dočakat dan,
ko, koder sonce hodi,
prepir iz svéta bo pregnan,
ko rojak
prost bo vsak,
ne vrag, le sosed bo mejak!
Nazadnje še, prijatlji,
kozarce zase vzdignimo,
ki smo zato se zbratli,
ker dobro v srcu mislimo;
dókaj dni
naj živí
vsak, kar nas dobrih je ljudi! France Prešeren, Zdravica
“Vjera je najjače od svih zemaljskih oružja. Nepobjedivo. I zato naš narod, malen među velikima, još uvijek živi i visoko diže svoj stijeg. Neka dršću svi silnici, krunjeni i nekrunjeni, jer nad njima vječno lebdi pravda - a u nama živi vječna snaga - naša vjera.”
