How can I not love Maurice Sendak?

It’s been way too long since I shared something on my blog that has nothing to do with this godforsaken place.

This is one of those things.

I don’t really have anything wise to say about it. Certainly not as wise as the words of Sendak.

I can only hope it moves you as much as it has moved me.

(Guess what I’m going to read the kids tonight…)

Before you go...

A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters. If each of our readers becomes a supporter of our work, +972 Magazine will remain a strong, independent, and sustainable force helping drive the discourse on Israel/Palestine in the right direction.
