Ray Bradbury

"Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things." — Ray Bradbury 

YESTERDAY, June 6, Ray Bradbury passed away at the age of 91. I've never read his classic Fahrenheit 451. Paul has read lots of his books. 

I had to remind myself that it was Bradbury who wrote a movie I like called The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit, starring Joe Mantegna and Edward James OlmosIt's the story of a magical white suit that one man wants so much that he recruits four other men to pool their money with his to buy and share it — and the way the suit makes one dream come true for each of them. 

I'm guessing there are probably quite a few Bradbury fans who aren't aware that the movie exists. I'm passing on this little tidbit in case you might like to know.
