Thanks Meg

I am grateful to Madeline L'Engle for inspiring in me a lifelong love of reading. She died yesterday at age 88.

You provided to a little boy an example of a
“faith that the universe has meaning, that our little human lives are not irrelevant, that what we choose or say or do matters, matters cosmically.”
You'll be missed, Meg.

Your mom joins you in mourning.
We first read about her wrinkles and cherubims and winds over 20 years ago!

Eagerly awaiting the SpawnofDrugMonkey getting old enough for A Wrinkle in Time, myself. She will be missed.

How sad! I loved her books and read A Wringle in Time at least 4-5 times during my childhood.
