"I wish you all good things. Live your life, live your life, live your life."
Maurice Sendak, beloved author and illustrator of children's books, passed away on May 8th, 2012.
Sendak's words and artwork ignited the imaginations of children and adults around the world. We mourned the loss of a great artist and inspiration, but we are thankful for what he has left us with. Tonight, as I listened to NPR Fresh Air interview with Terry Gross - one of the most soul-stirring interviews I've ever heard - I mourned all over again.
Here is the last five minutes of that interview, illustrated by Christoph Niemann.
Thank you, Inna.
