Its been a while since I’ve written anything here and, though I fully intend to get back to it in the coming months, a couple sad events required mentioning:
MCA died last Friday. The number of tributes available on the web make this small entry seem, well, really small, but in the timeline of my life his influence was almost immeasurable so some mention is needed on this wall.
Then this morning I find out that Maurice Sendak died. With my first child about a month out now, his advice:
Parents shouldn’t assume children are made out of sugar candy and will break and collapse instantly. Kids don’t. We do.
Is something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently.
A sad couple days.
