Monday I visited the library after seeing the doctor, because they were holding a book for me. while i was there i quickly snatched up a volume of short stories, cuz that's about how long my attention can last and my eyes can stay open. it's a ray bradbury collection. man, that dude has been around for a looooooooooooong time. he is currently 87 years old. he wrote the forward of the book in 2003, damn, i hope i'm thinking, let alone writing when i get into my 80s.
