Sad news today that Maurice Sendak has died.
Good article in the New York Times here . A brilliant man.
In his most recent interview with NPR he said the following : I have nothing now but praise for my life. I’m not unhappy. I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more. … What I dread is the isolation. … There are so many beautiful things in the world which I will have to leave when I die, but I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready.”
