The Celsius1414 Journal is written by Robert Daeley of Claremont, California. As will become immediately apparent, he is easily distracted.
The temperature 1414°C is the melting point of silicon and is an allusion to Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
Some posts will feature Spanish/Español. The author is studying the language and will probably make mistakes. Lo siento.

“First and foremost, [Writing] reminds us that we are alive and that it is gift and a privilege, not a right. We must earn life once it has been awarded us. Life asks for rewards back because it has favored us with animation.” – Ray Bradbury
