Many Blessings to Mr. Maurice Sendak on his Journey to The Land of the Wild Things

Wild Things and Max

Dear, Dear Readers,

Today, we lost one of the great Author / Illustrators of all time, Maurice Sendak. He wrote many books, the most famous was, of course, Where The Wild Things Are.

I have to say that as a child, I was greatly inspired and influenced by the amazing imagination of Mr. Sendak. When I was little, my mom bought me a book called Pierre: A Cautionary Tale in Five Chapters and a Prologue that had an accompanying record of Carole King singing the words. I read and listened to this for hours on end. It was yet another moment of absolute childhood wonder for me crafted by Mr. Sendak (and Ms. King!).

I will forever be grateful to Mr. Sendak for not only fostering my imagination but inspiring me as a child to become the writer I am today!

Maurice Sendak

Rest In Peace, Mr. Sendak

  4. Hello Friends and Fellow-bloggers,
    For the past month a group of you have been extending your friendship hand by reading my posts and sharing your thoughts, nominating me for the VBA & THE LINK TO LINK AWARD, INSPIRATIONAL AWARD, COMMENTATOR AND SUNSHINE AWARDS, each a tribute and beautiful sweet honors gratuitously sent my way. Each are wholeheartedly accepted and acknowledged in this post despite my inability to post each photo of each of these marvelous awards.
    Unfortunately, I’ve yet to master how to work with all these settings and technical availabilities, nevertheless, I still wanted to write down the nominees I wish to extend these same AWARDS to EACH of the magnificent and gifted writers, photographers, poets, musicians, artists and bearers of the light. Each one have souls that burn with the greatest gifts~ FAITH, HOPE & CHARITY. Each one use their senses of sight, hearing, touch, and smell to their maximum use then bring these into unique affinities that shine through in their own beautiful way and methods.
    A person in my physical condition with severe limitations and usually bedridden in my parents home, your blogs allow me to travel, hear new viewpoints, see unbelievable sights, cry with your joys and pains, discover things I never thought I’d like since I’ve been somewhat secluded but never naive. Your blogs are new and beautiful paths strewn with rich colors of understanding, insight, passions and, creating a more “well-rounded soul (something my younger sister always said I lacked).
    HERE ARE THE NOMINEE’S & Give these with sincere admiration and friendship and deep gratitude for your kindness and time which you allott me throughout your week. Bless each one of you in all your endeavors and personal desires to reaching your dreams. You have my support.
