Today is the 86th birthday of my dear friend---

Ray Bradbury

And this is his advice for living:

"First you jump off the cliff and you build your wings on the way down."

Check out my Ex Libris blog, where I've written about Ray's novel Something Wicked This Way Comes.

I've always had problems with that quotation, not being the reckless type myself. I'm happy to follow Bray's advice, but let me strap on my parachute first. Just in case.

Fans are leaving birthday greetings for Ray over on his official message board:

I wish I had followed Ray's advice before I became too feeble to crawl to the edge of the cliff.

Throw me over, PLEASE! I believe I could work better without the bounds of earth, maybe on some wings.
