When something resonates with you, it’s natural to want to share it with others. I was very young the first time I read FARENHEIT 451, and I probably didn’t understand it completely, but I knew even then that this writer understood me and I understood him, even in my not-fully-developed pre-teen mind.
I realize as I age that I am drawn to people who really think deeply about the world and about people, and also have wild imaginations. Ray Bradbury is one of my heroes. I love this clip of him, as he says many things that remind me of what it means to be creative and to live fully in our chaotic world.
One of my favorite lines he says in this video: “Stand at the top of the cliff and jump off and build your wings on the way down.” Wow.
I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did to this great man as he shares his tremendous intelligence and understanding of life.
