Take Me Home

by Ray Bradbury – June 4, 2012

I would go out to that lawn on summer nights and reach up to the red light of Mars and say, “Take me home!” I yearned to fly away and land there in the strange dusts that blew over dead-sea bottoms toward the ancient cities.

I wish I believed you were, Ray.  I really, truly do.

  1. I really liked this post Bill. He was a great man. I for one, think he is exactly where he wants to be, Mars and many other places of his choosing. He is having a ball.

    I tried to +1 your post on my G+ account. I probably did something wrong but wanted to report my steps in case the problem was you website. Here is what I did.

    1. Clicked the pull down list next to your Share to Facebook icon.
    2. Selected G+ by clicking it on your PD list.
    3. Added my personal comments.
    4. Selected Share Publicly.

    Unfortunantly the share to my G+ account did not work. I tried several times but finally had to go directly to my G+ account and post directly.

    Just in case this might not be my error, I wanted to alert you.

    • Thanks, George. I’m pleased that you enjoyed the post. I’ll check out the G+ issue. If it’s a problem I need to tell WordPress about it.

    • Too right, Mike. Zen in the Art of Writing, along with Strunk and White, are always nearby, and frequently read.

      The photo was such great luck! I was in a hurry, and it was the first thing that popped up when I googled “Hubble images.”

      Thanks for stopping by.

Got an opinion? Keep it clean. Don't ask open-ended questions, like "Does the Pope belong to a coven?" Make it pertinent.
