|Ray Bradbury (1920-2012)|
— Ray Bradbury, from "Something Wicked This Way Comes"
I am still processing the things I need to write about the death of Ray Bradbury. Whether anybody reads them or not. I believe he would understand that.
Meanwhile, please check these links, which say some of the things I am feeling or show some of the reasons I feel them:
Ray Bradbury's obituary.
My favorite living author, Neil Gaiman, reads aloud his story, "The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury." This made me cry, which one should not do at work.
A tumblr post with video embedded in which RB talks about the reasons to write -- and not to write.
Gaiman quotes Bradbury: "Looking back over a lifetime, you see that love was the answer to everything."
An introduction to a Bradbury collection, written by Gaiman a couple of years ago.
Take Me Home, an essay by Bradbury in The New Yorker, published June 4.
"B is for Bradbury," the 6/29/2010 entry from this blog, in which I write about finding the book that cemented my love of writing (and reading), Bradbury's "S is for Space."
That's all I have for right now. I'll gather my emotions and thoughts and return before too long with more for the 10 or so people who sometimes read this. It's how I deal with things. I appreciate you "listening."
