The former “Green Town, IL” (a.k.a. Waukegan) resident and master storyteller is 90 years young today!
When I was a boy in the Midwest I used to go out and look at the stars at night and wonder about them.
I guess every boy does that.
When I wasn’t looking at the stars, I was running in my old or my brand-new tennis shoes, on my way to swing in a tree, swim in a lake, or delve in the town library to read about dinosaurs or time machines.
I guess every boy has done that, too…
The stars are yours, if you have the head, the hands, and the heart for them.
– Ray Bradbury
