we met ray bradbury! we swam past him and said to him “what are you doing here, human person?” he said “I’m doing a lecture on fiction writing, what are all you fish doing here?” we said “we’re here to LISTEN to a lecture on fiction writing!” he said “well that’s odd. I had no idea fish liked to write fiction.” we said “oh, we don’t, we just want to understand it better.” he said “I respect that.”
years later we are still writing fiction! our favorite ray bradbury book is called “a graveyard for lunatics”!
we hum swimmy hums for you, bradburyFriend! whatever is out there, your mind is well prepared for the journey, to mars or across the veldt!
