PhiloMadrid Skype meeting: Wed 24th April at 8:00pm: NEWS and Fear of Change

Bad News….Retiro meeting: Unfortunately, the weather doesn't seem to be
settled enough to meet comfortably outside at the Retiro this Saturday.
So we'll have to wait for Saturday next week and see how the weather
evolves. I will confirm with an email on Wednesday or Thursday next week
or send me a WhatsApp.

In any event, we agreed yesterday that we should try to meet at the
Retiro every two weeks once the weather has settled down.

In the meantime we won't have a meeting on the 1st May given that
probably everyone will be away for the long week holiday!!!

In the meantime we never got round to discuss our topic yesterday so
this coming Wednesday we'll try and finish off the topic. ITMT

Dear friends,

This Wednesday we are continuing discussing: Fear of Change

The topic was suggested by Norma. We have already discussed various
aspects of change and in my short essay I try to address the aspect of
fear in our topic.

Fear of Change

News: I am thinking of meeting this coming Saturday, 20th April, at the
Retiro assuming the weather is up to it! I will send a confirmation
messaging later in the week to see how the weather is evolving for


- Book by Asuncion

Title: Timeless Joyce

Author: Asuncion Lopez Varela Azcarate

Description: 2022 marked the 100th anniversary of the publication of
James Joyce's Ulysses.

This book is a celebration of Joyce's text and of the aspects that make
his masterpiece timeless.

Structured under the inspiration of Brancusi's spiral image, 'Symbol of
James Joyce', the volume shows Joyce's play in two movements: a
centripetal move towards unity, using myth, analogies and
correspondences and a centrifugal force, with a cunning mixture of irony
and unanticipated turns, where the dream of unity is shattered and the
text resonates in multiple directions, manifesting its diversity through
forms of duplicity and double coding. ……….more details from the AMAZON
