From Chapter 4, "The Black Thing," of L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time:

It was a shadow, nothing but a shadow. It was not even as tangible as a cloud. Was it cast by something? Or was it a Thing in itself?....

Meg looked. The dark shadow was still there. It had not lessened or dispersed with the coming of night. And where the shadow was the stars were not visible.

From Chapter 5, "The Tesseract":

"Yyouu hhave ssaidd itt!" Mrs Which's voice rang out. "Itt iss Eevill. Itt iss thee Ppowers of Ddarrkknessss!"

"But what's going to happen?" Meg's voice trembled. "Oh please, Mrs Which, tell us what's going to happen!"

"Wee wwill cconnttinnue tto ffightt!"


Sometimes it's good to revisit children's literature, especially as the shadow's getting closer to us. It's good to remember to fight on.

It's going to be a movie soon, so you could be justified in borrowing your son's book in preparation. :)

Happy Friday!
