“We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.” –Ray Bradbury

A great writer Ray Bradbury passed away. Even if you don’t like science fiction, he was one of the best writers on this planet. His stories were well crafted and a wonderfully good read. I grew up reading his novels, he was my introduction to places of excitement, a way to escape to other worlds when mine became unbearable.

In an interview for “The Paris Review” he said that he did not feel responsible for his own writing success, saying he felt that God helped him write. “The best description of my career as a writer is ‘at play in the fields of the Lord.’  It’s been wonderful fun and I’ll be damned where any of it came from. I’ve been fortunate. Very fortunate.”
