"He Saw It, He Loved It, He Ate It…"

A new way to consume art and words.
From the Washington Post Blog, ComPost:
“Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”
— Maurice Sendak
“Everyone is allowed to have secrets,” he said.
“Yeah,” I agreed, though I never knew anyone like him, who scribbled those secrets on napkins and ate them…

  1. I saw that Maurice Sendak line somewhere and loved it. One of my favorite Post Secrets is something like “Every time I finish a book I eat the last page.”
