"LIVE YOUR LIFE, LIVE YOUR LIFE, LIVE YOUR LIFE."

This morning I stumbled on this video, thanks to our friend over at Head Butler, and I had to share it with all of you. I hereby officially declare that  the interview with Maurice Sendak contains my anthem for life. I began weeping halfway through, listening to Sendak's ancient voice. "I am in love with the world." We do not have to wait to get old to fall in love with the world again; we started out in that love, and many of us lose the way. Here is wisdom to nudge us towards the path. Take time, every day, for that love. The drawings by Christoph Niemann, one of my favorite illustrators, are charming, too.

The pleasure in a beautiful and beautifully cooked egg, the yolk-colored sunrise, the wisdom from Maurice Sendak —it all works together, doesn't it?

This interview -- which I have heard many times -- never fails to leave me weeping. It is so poignant, so honest, so emotional, so wise. Live your life and be in love with the world.

thank you for this. smiling the whole way. what a great guy he was. so little authenticity in the world and he was. live your life live your life. you know, you hear people say words and they just don't sound real, but sendak always sounds real. "i will cry my way all the way to the grave... i miss people."
