1857 - Joseph Conrad...whose Heart of Darkness strangely captured my imagination during an evening college literature class so many years ago. The professor of the course changed my life and its direction with his obvious passion for literature. His readings were always animated and in the moment of the the story. I took every course available from him before departing.

A few years ago I visited him at his home in the country (a fine, small cattle farm on a quiet, back road) to inform him it had been his fault I had become an English teacher, spending all of those years striving to be just a hint as effective as he had been. Our conversation that day moved to Mr. Bradbury and his many years of influences as well. F451 took up a good part of our literature exchanges, as I now recall!

So, thanks Misters Conrad, Bradbury, and Reid!!

“I don't like work--no man does--but I like what is in the work--the chance to find yourself. Your own reality--for yourself not for others--what no other man can ever know. They can only see the mere show, and never can tell what it really means.”

“...for there is nothing mysterious to a seaman unless it be the sea itself, which is the mistress of his existence...”

“We penetrated deeper and deeper into the heart of darkness”

“The horror! The horror!”

Bradburyian - a la "Cecy!"

RE: "Little Wing" J. Hendrix

Well, she's walking through the clouds,
With a circus mind that's running wild,
Butterflies and Zebras,
And Moonbeams and fairy tales.
That's all she ever thinks about.
Riding with the wind.

When I'm sad, she comes to me,
With a thousand smiles she gives to me free.
It's alright, she says it's alright,
Take anything you want from me,
Anything.
Fly on little wing.
