Thank you Ray Bradbury

A friend asked me how I came up with the name of my blog.  It wasn’t easy.  How do I capture a feeling or an idea in a few words that will give someone a sense of what my thinking is behind all this?  Thank goodness for the inspiration and words of others.

While perusing Brain Pickings I found excerpts of an interview with Ray Bradbury at the 2010 Comic Con.  The Q & A that made the light bulb go off in my head:

Sam Weller (Bradbury’s official biographer): “If you could time-travel to a moment in your life, what moment would you go back to?”

Ray Bradbury:

“Every. Single. Moment. Every single moment of my life has been incredible, I’ve loved it, I’ve savored it, it’s been beautiful — because I’ve remained a boy. The man you see here tonight is not a man, he’s a 12-year-old boy, and this boy is still having fun. And I remain a boy forever.”

So with that it’s off to the Guggenheim to see the “Picasso Black and White” exhibition.
