BW34: Sunday's Book Babble - Ray Bradbury


Today is the anniversary of one of my favorite writers Ray Bradbury who entertains with his writing and inspired my Feed the Muse challenge.   

Doing is Being


Ray Bradbury

Doing is being.
To have done’s not enough.
To stuff yourself with doing — that’s the game.
To name yourself each hour by what’s done,
To tabulate your time at sunset’s gun
And find yourself in acts
You could not know before the facts
You wooed from secret self, which much needs wooing,
So doing brings it out,
Kills doubt by simply jumping, rushing, running
Forth to be
The new-discovered me.
To not do is to die,
Or lie about and lie about the things
You just might do some day.
Away with that!
Tomorrow empty stays
If no man plays it into being
With his motioned way of seeing.
Let your body lead your mind —
Blood the guide dog to the blind;
So then practice and rehearse
To find heart-soul’s universe,
Knowing that by moving/seeing
Proves for all time: Doing’s being!


Currently reading Hexing with a Chance of Tornados.   Think I need some heavier reads and will get back into reading the last Wheel of Time book after I'm done.  Need more meat with my fluff.   

We have a busy yet fun week coming up. Hubby and I celebrating 24 years of marriage on Monday and Wednesday is Hubby's 62nd birthday.  Party time!
