March 12, 2015 was a sad day for me and many others. The world said goodbye to Sir Terry Pratchett, the inventor and genius behind the Discworld series and many other wonderful books. Having written over seventy books, he brought smiles and laughter to many people’s faces. I am convinced of that.
I know that many words have already been said about this remarkable man who faced the horror of Alzheimer in his last years, a disease he called the ’embuggerance’. Therefore I will keep this short, but I wanted to add my little something to the many tributes to this author who, together with Ray Bradbury, inspired me to write more and better.
“DON’T THINK OF IT AS DYING,” said Death. “JUST THINK OF IT AS LEAVING EARLY TO AVOID THE RUSH.”
