Pixar Proves You Can Go UP! But Never Back

Watching UP! today reminded me of a story in Ray Bradbury’s Dandelion Wine. Mr. Fredrickson meets Mrs. Bentley:

UP!

You can only be what you are here and now.

Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine

Where is my comfort zone? A simple place to call my own
Cause everything I wanna be Comes crashing down on me
And it don
t show up in the pavement cracks
I can
t even recognise my tracks
You and I can
t turn the whole thing back
Ooh I wish you well
