Devin shared this short video with me today.
With the wind howling outside and clouds speedily tearing across the sky I sat and listened to Maurice Sendack and Terry Gross speak on the program Fresh Air. A surprisingly poignent interview, packed with wisdom and emotion from Sendack, a magical creative mind that gave the world many gifts. Sendack died this May at the age of 83.
The best advice I've heard of late came from the end of this little video.
Simple and True.
"Live your life. Live your life. Live your life." - M. Sendack
These words feel ever so appropriate as we say goodbye to 2012 and begin another trip around the sun.
"I wish you all good things" T.Gross
Happy New Year.
p.s. Here's a less somber glimpse of Sendack on Stephen Colbert.
