One of our greatest writers, Mr. Ray Bradbury, was born today in 1920. Though he left us in 2012, his works remain to challenge, entertain, teach and inspire us.

Something Wicked This Way Comes & The October Country are such a part of my childhood, I re-read them every year to connect with those wonder-filled days of youth.

Selection from my book – The Little Things DO Suck!

Little Things Like:

TV commercials about make-up products—

where the before picture is obviously taken in bad light, the person has no make-up, is wearing their worst clothes and is positioned in an unappealing location

and the after picture has great lighting, the person has on professional make-up, is wearing clothes provided by the make-up company and is now located in a place with a spectacular view

–giving the viewer the impression that the product has performed a miracle.

Robin Williams

Fuck you, Universe for taking Robin Williams. We needed him a while longer–because the world needs to laugh more.
