A sad day

One of my favorite authors, Madeline L'Engle, has died. She was 88. The New York Times article reporting her death quotes her as saying,

“Why does anybody tell a story?” Ms. L’Engle once asked, even though she knew the answer.

“It does indeed have something to do with faith,” she said, “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.”

What you chose to say will indeed continue to matter cosmically, for a very long time, Ms. L'Engle.
