Maira Kalman: Daily Things to Fall in Love With
Maira Kalman would describe her life as very boring. "If most people had
to live it, they would go, 'Oh, that's it?'" she says. Yet the visual
storyteller, and author and illustrator of over 20 books for adults and
children leads a life that would leave many with feelings of awe and
fascination. Paying keen attention to its details, she is a master of
introspection, curiosity, and awareness. In this conversation with
Krista Tippett of On Being, Kalman elaborates on "life's intrinsic
quirkiness and whimsy" alongside its "intrinsic seriousness." As she
delves into her family history, love of dogs, and daily routine, it's
impossible not to be inspired by her deep wisdom and gentle reminder
that beauty and joy reside in the ordinary.
