. . . and raise a glass to the Illustrated Man - a giant no longer walks the world. Ray Bradbury died last night; he was ninety-one years old.

In his own words . . .
"You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." - R. Bradbury

Rest in peace, Mr. Bradbury. If only we had gone to Mars in his lifetime. Now I say we have to!

RIP. Farenheit 451 was one of the best books I ever read in English class.

A Giant, indeed. Our Earth could not hold him. I am sad.

I read the book in college. Thought it was amazing. I wish you well in the next life. I hope you're writing books wherever there may be.
