Why?

It's the hardest question to answer, and the most satisfying when you finally do.

Ulises me espera

No se si al fin y al cabo voy a sobrevivir al CODVID-19, aún no lo tengo (espero), pero si me da y se agrava, no sé si tendré tiempo para terminar de leerlo antes de irme, no me gustaría que el infierno fuera una tertulia eterna en la que se discuta el Ulises de Joyce como único tema.
