See You Later, Madeleine

Madeleine L'Engle died Thursday. She was the author of my favorite book in elementary school "A Wrinkle in Time". The NYT has an article about her, you can check it out for yourself. I love the last line:

“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.”
