for your gifts to us -
for outstanding books and art;
and for your honesty, your passion and your naughtiness.
As writers, as artists, and as people,
may we be so honest -
to find that unique voice and be true to it;
so passionate -
to live and work with unashamed abandon;
so naughty -
to remember that we were all children once, and hopefully some of us still are.
|In The Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak|
