but if of ships i now should sing, what ship would come for me?

He's already chosen - it's beside Maggie at Pierce Brothers Westwood.

I have a photo but can't bring myself to post it here.

If you'd like to see, email me on forrestjbradbury at gmail dot com.

"The sun is going to explode and we're all doomed" mentioned in a current movie as a childhood fear--hope everyone's either seen the movie who was going to, or doesn't figure out which one it is until they have--definite déjá vu moment from a Ray Bradbury story. I can't say which one, but certainly space related and possibly in "The Martian Chronicles." A character mentions crying as a child when told this. His mother asked him why--they and generations after them will certainly be dead by then. "I'm crying for all those people up ahead," says the boy. "Don't worry about them," says the mother. The boy, now grown, goes on to explain that he now has hope thanks to space exploration of the human race finding a new home long before then. *

I wanted to do two things when I saw this scene in the movie. Tell the child, READ BRADBURY, and tell the teacher, no, the entire human race is not doomed. When doomsday gets close, those who can afford spaceship fare will survive, those who can't will perish. Wasn't Hurricane Katrina proof enough? (As far as the movie, I couldn't help thinking what Bradbury said about a proper horror movie building up a huge hairball of fear and helping you expel the hairball, and a wrong sort of movie leaving you with the hairball. Now I'm dying to ask what he thinks of this one!)

* Linnl has kindly identified this as "The Strawberry Window."
