Anyway, back the visceral blog - it linked to the New York Times and an interview with the man who wrote and illustrated 'Where the Wild Things Are' published in 1963. I recall this children's book in the same way as I recall 1970's decor and the 'brownness' of everything that seemed to permeate my early years. What was it with the 1970's and decorating with brown?!
So I found myself, alone on a Monday afternoon, shedding tears at what was said in this interview with Maurice Sendak - he speaks of the topic I spend a disproportionate amount of time considering: making the best of life. The advice is this: live your life, live your life, live your life. Listen to it; it's heart-wrenching important advice.
