I looked sideways but Joyce was not smiling. I thought of [French novelist Gustave] Flaubert. "You've been seeking the mot juste?" I said.
No," said Joyce. "I have the words already. What I am seeking is the perfect order of words in the sentence.”
The notion of having written 1000 posts in BRT astounds me. The fact you, my loyal readers, have read all of this stuff astounds me even more, something I treasure when trying to make sense out of the chaotic reality in which we all live from the perspective of science and technology and the impact they have on civilization. In commemorating this specific "masterpiece" :), I quote Joyce as the start point in writing this 1000th blurb as the quality of thought Joyce brings to the world through his writing is as timeless and powerful as that of Homer, the blind poet who started it all when writing the Iliad and Odyssey back in the day. :)
PS, 1001 will be forthcoming.
