    A great monolog by a great writer. I will enjoy sharing this with my family. His last sentence is so sad though… “I thank the universe for … allowing me to come alive here.” He evidently believed in God but that He was unknowable (http://www.geneveith.com/2012/06/07/and-now-ray-bradbury/)

    “Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your vain life that he has given you under the sun, because that is your portion in life and in your toil at which you toil under the sun.”
    – Eccl 9:9
