A little wrinkle

Have I mentioned how sad I am about Madeleine L'Engle? (Hopefully sad enough to have spelled her name right...) I LOVED those books, especially A Wrinkle In Time.

You know we named Margaret after my grandmother, but I thought I might like to call her Meg, after Meg Murray. It's a great name! Sadly, I don't think it's going to work. A Meg would not fling herself across the floor for a stray Cheerio. (Would she?) She would not giggle hysterically when her big sister cries. My big Margaret seems too insensible, silly and fat to be a Meg. Of course, I think that's okay. I just need to keep looking for the right name.

I am glad you wrote about this! I was SO sad to hear she died. "A Wrinkle in TIme" actually kind of scared me. But I loved all her other books, about the Austin family and a girl who went to boarding school in Europe.

How about Meggie? Maybe she'll grow into Meg.
I've never read any of those books. Would they make good plane reading?

Oh, yes! They would make great plane reading. And Wrinkle in Time is totally up your alley. I did like the Austin family books too -- but I don't know about this boarding school one? Someone needs to give me a title!

I, for one, often fling muyself on the floor for a stray cheerio...or pastry, more likely.

There's always the fun-loving, giddy, happy "Meg" from Little Women. Oh, wait. She was kinda a dud, wasn't she?

Sigh.

Maggie sounds good.

I know a silly chunky Meg. I think that's fine. Maggie is good, too.

I once made a 2 1/2x 3' model of a museum whose rooms were all dedicated to "A Wrinkle in Time" for a language arts program. I'm not being flip when I say I think it might be the greatest achievement of my academic career.

"A silly chunky Meg"?!?!

Hey! That's just extra baby weight. It will go away.

Someday.
