... Goodbye Maurice

I'm in the studio today and as I settled down to make a post, I cued up "Fresh Air", my daily ritual, only to find this:
Author and illustrator Maurice Sendak, whose classic children's book Where the Wild Things Are became a perennial and award-winning favorite for generations of children, died Tuesday. He was 83.
  I posted about his profoundly beautiful conversation with Terry Gross a few months ago. Their discussion about death and dying- life and living, so moved me I've listened to in many times since it aired. You will be missed M.S., but we'll keep your memory very much alive through your books in this house- and I will treasure your words about the brevity of life for the rest of my days.
