Where the Wild Things Were

Mr. Block's column in the New York Times reminded me of some of the writing we passionately discussed in our Chatham Nature Writing course. I had hoped that Block wouild credit Maurice Sendak for the appropriation of his title of his 46 year old classic Where the Wild Things Are but even so it is a thoughtful coming of age essay. Wasn't there a time in most of our childhoods when we dreamed of taming, befriending a wild creature?

I know I had many moments like that in my childhood. I think maybe I still do!

I read this article! I agree, but I have to say I'm still trying to befriend wild creatures...that's worse than co-dependency, you know ;)
