So many beautiful things have been said in the last few days about the unshakeable and ever impressive Maurice Sendak. I don’t have many to add.

Just a thank you for respecting our childhood enough to hold up a mirror and reflect it back to us indefinitely. Even long after we have  become grumpy, frightened grownups.

An NPR Fresh Air interview soon after the release of Bumble-Ardy.

Lovely. Tender. Sad. Funny. Wholly inspiring.

I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more.

    Thanks for sharing, Carter.
    From your positive, upbeat posts, I have a hard time believing you are a grumpy grownup!
