Ray Bradbury left us last night. His legacy is glorious. He was the first adult author I attempted read (at 8 years of age I tried to wrap my head around "Fahrenheit 451", which explains a lot. I finished it, but I had more questions than answers at the end that were only readdressed when I read the book again a decade+ later. Oh to be a naive youth again!)
This event makes me look back and back into the future he envisioned for us all to have to come to terms with... and another author's voice suddenly comes to mind.
"It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be."
I can not agree more. I think a Ray Bradbury quote is in order but I have not reflected enough on his life yet.
RIP Ray Bradbury (August 22, 1920 – June 5, 2012).
