SunnySister Listening to Ray Bradbury (7) RE: Listening to Ray Bradbury 12 Mar 06

Thank you so much Amos! Reading this means a lot.

When I was a teenager living in Southern California, I worked as a voluteer on the first staged production of "The Martian Chronicles" and Mr. Bradbury was there to work with the production.

I would like to say that I got to know him and we became friends. Nope. I was deeply, and I mean, DEEPLY, in awe of him and so I just kept quiet, listened to everything he said and stayed back in a shyness that happens to me it seems, when I would either have almost lived in his pocket bothering him with my fan-like admiration or, as I did, appreciate him and loved him from afar. A great experience though.

I am sorry to hear that he is in a wheelchair now although from what you write his spirit is as strong as ever. I'm so very, very glad that he followed his love- he's one of the authors who inspired me and taught me the value of books and of free speech.

I, like Kat, will be printing your post out. Thank you again for caring enough to take the time and post this.
