On June 5th, in Los Angeles, Ray Bradbury ended an amazing 70 year writing career that has left us with over 300 hundred tales and one of the great modern cautionary parables, Fahrenheit 451.
His stories dealt with technology and what me might achieve with it or what terrible things we could put it towards. His advice was trenchant and reached to the heart of writing. “Go to the edge of the cliff and jump off. Build your wings on the way down.” His advice also posed as a good advice for any area of life. “A life’s work should be based on love.”
Ray Bradbury has left behind an amazing legacy that will continue to be appreciated by anyone looking to by amazed and mystified by the power of story telling.
