If you are not familiar with Natalie Goldberg's books about writing, I highly recommend them. This one is "Wild Mind" and I frequently have a lump in my throat while reading it.
FunkyPlaid and I saw "Moonrise Kingdom" tonight and again, the lump in my throat appeared.
Ray Bradbury is gone. When I read "Fahrenheit 451" for the first time, I realised I wanted to write speculative fiction instead of just reading it. There, again, the lump. I guess it's just a lump-in-throat day.
