It’s Wednesday and all over the internet you will find photos with no words of explanation. Why? Because pictures say a thousand words.
Today I’m sharing photos in memory of one my favorite childhood authors, Maurice Sendak, who passed away yesterday at the age of 83. He was best known for “Where the Wild Things Are” and is the author of countless other titles. As best said by the Washington Post, Maurice Sendak’s legacy lives on in bedtime rituals around the world. I remember many nights reading “Where the Wild Things Are” and “Chicken Soup With Rice” with my own children. We read them so often that my kids knew the lines. My boys are now 8, 10 and 11 and I can still find them tucking into a corner devouring one of Maurice Sendak’s many titles. Mr. Sendak had an uncanny ability to remind us that it’s OK to channel our inner child every once in a while. He also validated walking on the wild side and that it’s OK to be a little crazy at times (my kids have that one down pat).
Do any of these photos remind you of your childhood?
Does the ocean remind you?
Or a beautiful sunset?
How about a bird?
How do you remember to have fun, play a little and enjoy life?
Thank you to my husband for the incredible photos.
