In honor of Madeleine L'Engle

I am quoting this from memory, in honor of the woman who inspired so many of us. Any errors in quoting are mine, not the author's. Rest in peace, Madeleine, and thank you.

Martha
Now
No one will ever laugh at me again.
I baked the bread:
I pressed the grapes for wine.


(By Madeleine L'Engle, from "Lines Scribbled on an Envelope".)
