01:28 pm - Quote for the Day
"I Name you Echthroi. I Name you Meg.
I Name you Calvin.
I Name you Mr. Jenkins.
I Name you Proginoskes.
I fill you with Naming.
Be, butterfly and behemoth,
be galaxy and grasshopper,
star and sparrow,
you matter,
you are,
Be caterpillar and comet,
Be porcupine and planet,
sea sand and solar system,
sing with us,
dance with us,
rejoice with us,
for the glory of creation,
seagulls and seraphim
angle worms and angel host,
chrysanthemum and cherubim.
(O cherubim.)
Sing for the glory
of the living and the loving
the flaming of creation
sing with us
dance with us
be with us.

- Madeleine L'Engle, A Wind in the Door

I've been on a Madeleine L'Engle kick lately, reading everything I can find by or about her. (Having access to a whole state's college library system ROCKS.) It's inspiring, particularly when I feel that I am doing the Ecthroi's work for them and trying to X myself out.

Ack, I can't believe I left out L'Engle in list of books on the getting-to-know-you meme I just finished. I so identified with Meg, you have no idea.
