Whenever someone famous dies who was very old, I say to my husband, "didn't he die a long time ago?" And so it was when I read this morning that Ray Bradbury, age 91, had passed away. When he was a small boy, a carnival magician touched him with his sword and said, "live forever." Certainly, Mr. Bradbury will live forever through his many, many works. I sadly must admit that I don't remember reading his two most famous works, Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles. In high school, however, I did read many of his short stories. What a fascinating mind!
I've been looking up quotes for today's blog. My goodness, he did have a lot to say. Though I will never, ever be as prolific as Ray Bradbuy, I can dream that someday something I wrote or said in passing will pop up on an internet search.
