It’s Google Appreciation Day. Love the Google-doodle in honor of Jorge Luis Borges

24 Aug

Oh Google! How I love thee today. You just keep us inspired and ever so curious with each Google-doodle you come up with, like the recent Frida Kahlo one and the electric guitar honoring Les Paul.

Today, August 24th, would have been Jorge Luis Borges’ 112th birthday. What a clever and beautiful way to honor one of the best- and most complicated- Latin American writers of the 20th century.

It’s been a while since I read Ficciones (1944) and other works of his, but this little reminder makes me want to take a closer look at the life of a genius man who pushed the limits of imagination.

Here’s a link to the video with the doodle. Nice going Google!
