It's National Bikini Day. Now this is a celebration that perhaps calls for fireworks. Reportedly, it was on this day in 1946 when the first bikini was introduced to the world, at least in modern times. I suppose this day could also mark the beginning of the sexual revolution. Alas, it's not a party I was invited to.

I was thinking that maybe I had just wore out my interest in Homer. Reading Lattimore's translation of the Iliad, my interest kept flagging, and I was thinking it is time to leave it behind me. However, I decided to return to Fagle's work and give that a try, and I am suddenly pepped up, losing myself in that ancient warrior world when gods and humans still fought and fucked together, and I am reminded that Homer's world will always be one of my homes.

Beware the toils of war ...
