The Martian Chronicles

I was ten years old when for the first time I entered Ray Bradbury's worlds of words, after a young age fed by Verne and Exupery from sci-fi passionate parents , I discovered a special shelf at my stepfather's library: it was the Bradbury Asimov one. I grabbed a handfull of books and started to check the descriptions, but cought in the act, he just gave me a green hardcover copy of the Martian Chronicles and said "Start with this."

That year I read most of Brabdury works and the Asimov foundation cycle, and when at my Father's house I dug into his whole walls of science fiction books (not shelf) and discovered those that will add to Bradbury as my most favourite writers (Herbert, Anderson, Van Vogt, Vance, Sturgeon, Gibson, Dick).
I still, as 26 years ago, never manage to progress in the book fully, a part of me always remains in that flower home, in that beautiful melancholic setting. I remember clearly my first vision of the couple, athletic, slim and naked, the brown golden skin innaturally glistening of a strange reflex, the coin yellow eyes without pupil seeing all and nothing, their 6 slim fingers tracing the book or crystal fruits. I never moved really from that point, even if reading the book a dozen times, because all the rest never resonated so powerfully. The real and only meaningful vision is there at the step of our story, in that intimate homely setting, in that imagination so wonderful, beautiful and majestic, and I believe firmly it was all that Bradbury really wanted to say.
This book is one of my all time favourites, I warmly recommend it for any age, but if you have kids...start early, it will enrich their imagination and soul.

Yule Season is at its end slowly, many things are moving permanently to the Temple as "Erin and Ragnar" Gacha and "Brier" Tattoo, and some will be retired after the 7th, as "A libertine Christmas" Gacha (currently in Libertine's skyarea). 
Penguins, after partying hard, are enjoying the fresh ice pool a little more before helping to dismantle the Tree (full of wonderful gifts!) and I am slowly marching into this new 2015 full of excitement for all the new creative opportunities ahead.
So if I didn't have the chance to wish you personally as Penguin Blaster a Happy 2015, let me do it now with my best wishes for a 2015 full of Growth, Meaning and Happiness!
