R.I.P. Maurice Sendak
Mural in the children's section of the Richland Library, Columbia, SC.
From the 1963 children's book, Where the Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak.
....from their earliest years children live on familiar terms with
disrupting emotions, fear and anxiety are an intrinsic part of their
everyday lives, they continually cope with frustrations as best they
can. And it is through fantasy that children achieve catharsis. It is
the best means they have for taming Wild Things.
