Madeleine L'Engle has died at 88

The author of my favorite book ever--The Newbury winner, A Wrinkle in Time--died yesterday. You can read about it here.



One of the things this article mentions that I've always loved about Madeleine is that in answer to the question of why we tell stories, she says that “It does indeed have something to do with faith. 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.”



Here's to mattering.
