Who was on the Chair?

“665. Who was on the Chair?” Oil painting by Mariko Irie

I saw many people reading a book at beach.

I used to take a book everywhere I went. But now I take my small sketchbook everywhere I go, with a camera as well.

Last night I saw the quotes of Ray Bradbury on my friend’s Facebook:

If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business, because we’d be cynical. Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.

You know him right? He was an American fantasy, science, horror and mystery fiction writer. Best known for his dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 (1953) and for the science fiction and horror stories gathered together as The Martian Chronicles (1950) and The Illustrated Man.

Ray Bradbury said: Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for.

And In my later years I have looked in the mirror each day and found a happy person staring back. Occasionally I wonder why I can be so happy. The answer is that every day of my life I’ve worked only for myself and for the joy that comes from writing and creating. The image in my mirror is not optimistic, but the result of optimal behavior.

I love his attitude, don’t you?
