the rumpus shall never end

Near the end of his life, visual storyteller Maurice Sendak gave a really good interview for NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross in which he reflected on his life and career and the nature of mortality. If his passing saddens you, listen to this interview. For a man aware of his fading existence, he sounds so much more alive than most adults half, or even a quarter, his age.

My favorite quote: “I am devoted to being an artist and a person who reads books for the rest of my life.”
