Just a brief break from the Daily Creative Writer blog to acknowledge Maurice Sendak. Where the Wild Things Are, was one of my favorite books growing up. When I was young, Max’s adventure seemed absolutely plausible (then again, I was the kid that kept looking for secret passages to Narnia every time I encountered a nook, cranny or closet that looked even remotely interesting). As an adult I realized the story was about letting your imagination run wild — if you have faith in your dreams and you let your muses lead the way, you can have fantastical adventures and still always find your way back home, where the soup is still waiting for you, and it’s still warm.
So RIP Mr. Sendak – you gave the world a beautiful story and your wild things are not the only ones who are tearful today.
