      Inside all of us is hope. Inside all of us is fear. Inside all of us is adventure. Inside all of us is a wild thing. RIP Maurice Sendak

      “Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received." RIP Maurice Sendak
