Ray and the Amazing Mr. Electrico

I have always loved to hear Bradbury talk about -- and to read about -- the fantastic Mr. Electrico, a carnival performer who made a profound impact on young Ray. The story goes that, at the conclusion of his performance, Mr. Electrico reached out his sword toward young Ray and proclaimed "Live forever!" So all through his life, Ray Douglas Bradbury, like a questing knight, took to heart this proclamation, to make himself live forever by breathing life into all the amazing things he loved. And now we must take up the quest for him: to seek out all that is wonderful and strange and to make these things live forever in our minds and hearts. And through us, the legacy of Ray Bradbury, in his timeless, immortal tales of the fantastic will in fact Live Forever!
