It is a blessing to get old

"It is a blessing to get old. I cry a lot because I miss people. I cry a lot because they die and I can't stop them. They leave me. And I love them more." ~ Maurice Sendak

The illustrated radio interview (linked through the quote above) with a very raw and vulnerable Maurice Sendak wrecked me. God bless you, Maurice Sendak. It must be wonderful to be with your brother again.
