So, I think I’m continuing this because I like having a chronological account of things that I think are important (or at least important at the time). Maurice Sendak recently died, and in looking up information on him, I came across this video. It is his account on life and death where he talks about what he would’ve missed out on if he’d never been born and the things he’s come to believe throughout his life. Where the Wild Things Are was a very big book in my childhood and the first time I saw the trailer for the movie (set to a very good Arcade Fire song), I kind of teared up…not only that, but so did my brother. This meant a lot to me, maybe just as much as the number of times I read that book as a child.
Anyway, now that is put down somewhere, I’m going to go listen to that whole cd…loudly.
