Damn. Now Maurice Sendak, too? Another individual who so strongly influenced what kind of an adult I became.
The man wrote and illustrated the most beautiful piece of children’s literature the world has ever seen.
…and an ocean tumbled by with a private boat for Max and he sailed off through night and day and in and out of weeks and almost over a year to where the wild things are.
And I think that those last six words are some of the most captivating/compelling/magical words to ever be written.
They seem so simple but penetrate all the way down to your soul for some reason.
I think because everyone’s wild things are different.
Finally, I highly suggest you watch this documentary. It will make you love Maurice Sendak more than you already do.
