"It is a Blessing to Get Old"

In September 2011 Terry Gross interviewed late author Maurice Sendak on NPR's Fresh Air. The clip below is the last 5 minutes that moved Christoph Niemann so deeply that he decided to accompany it with illustrations. Sendak's final book, Bumble-Ardy, was published the same week as the interview. Senkak died in 2012, a great loss.

I found this gem through Janet Somerville's blog and I hope she won't mind that I have passed it on.
