Maurice Sendak

This week an amazing author died, Maurice Sendak.  I think we all paused somewhere and said, ahhhh. Who hasn't read Where the Wild Things Are?  I've read that book to my kids so many times. I think we all mourn great authors when they pass.  In schools all over the US, they have a Dr. Seuss day.  I LOVE that.  Sometimes writers change the world. Sometimes, the pen is mightier than the sword and it's hard when that pen is laid down, to never be picked up again.  I think we should think about that and maybe do a little introspection on how, what and why we write. Sometimes, what we write makes a difference in some one's life.  I hope it's for the good.
