RIP Maurice Sendak

One of the greats, Maurice Sendak, is now in heaven, or somewhere like it. Probably Brooklyn.

A Hole Is To Dig was my introduction to Sendak. I was very small. It had just been published. Yes, I've loved Sendak all my life. I met him once on an airplane. Thrill.

Maurice Sendak collaborated with Carole King to produce one of the greatest soundtracks of all my opinion. The Nutshell Kids present Really Rosie. It was the soundtrack of my oldest daughter's early years, in the 1970's. Good times. I can still sing it word for word.
