"Ray Bradbury Landing and Ray Bradbury Square!"

Now we will forever have a common place to meet when we are on Mars and in LA. How appropriate!

We had a lovely celebration of life yesterday - an Irish wake for Ray at his graveside. His actors were there and we had readings, stories and then lunch at a local Irish pub. See more on my Facepage.


"Live Forever!"

DS: "...an Irish wake for Ray at his graveside. His actors were there and we had readings..."

Deanna Durbin was a favorite of Mr. Bradbury's in one of his wonderful Irish stories ("The Anthem Sprinters"). Here this song's simple lyrics are truly ironic and sung angelically:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofULnIeo3I8

-------------------------
Goin' home, goin' home,
I am goin' home,
Quiet light, some still day,
I am goin' home.

It ain't far, Jes' close by,
Through an open door,
Work all done, care laid by,
Goin' t' fear no more.

Mother's there, 'spectin' me,
Father's waitin' too,
Lots o' folks gathered there,
All the friends I knew.

Nothin's lost, all is gain,
No more fret nor pain,
No more stumblin' on the way,
No more sweat n' strain.

Mornin' star lights the way,
Restless dream all done,
Shadows gone, break of day,
Real life has begun.

There's no break, there's no end,
Just a livin' on,
Wide awake with a smile,
Goin' on an' on.

Goin' home, goin' home,
I am goin' home.
Here am I, all alone,
I am goin' home.

I am goin' home.


(Goin' Home, music by Antonin Dvorak, 1893, words by William Arms Fisher, 1922)

An event in November, for anyone in or around Indianapolis: Jon Eller lectures on Ray Bradbury.

The title of the talk, "Cry the Cosmos", references an inspirational essay that Ray wrote for LIFE magazine in the early '60s.

The very informal event at the Fremont Centre Theatre this Sunday were some of Ray's Pandemonium Theatre Company actors will be reading and saying good-bye to their mentor.

The L.A. event dedicating Ray Bradbury Square has been postponed by the city. It was hoped to be October 31st, then moved to the 29th but not will not be held until November (date not set).

There are separate Forry and Ray Bradbury tributes on Friday, Steampunk and Blade Runner and Tim Powers events on Saturday, and on Sunday George Clayton Johnson discusses Icarus Montgolfier Wright (co-authored by Ray).
