Maurice Sendak RIP

Maurice Sendak passed away at 83.  I call my 5 year old son "little bear" because he reminds me of Sendak's illustrations of that series.  My older kids have both worn a Max costume (from Where the Wild Things Are) for Purim that my mother sewed.

He was an avowed atheist with no belief in any afterlife, but forgive me if I imagine him gnashing his terrible teeth and rolling his terrible eyes and shouting "LET THE WILD RUMPUS BEGIN!!!"

MCA and Sendak in the same week.  My youth seems to be slipping farther and farther into the past in fits and starts these days.
