A Wrinkle In Time, Chapter 1


A Wrinkle In Time, Chapter 1

Tomorrow will mark a milestone for theencouragingword, two thousand blogs and I have only been at it six years. At this rate I will achieve my goal of ten thousand blogs by age ninety-six or so. That is a lot of encouraging words, my friends.

Today I begin chapter one of the twelve chapters of Madeline L’Engles’ well-known and well-read book, A Wrinkle In Time. My daughter Emily first introduced it to me after she read it and fell in love with it in Middle School. This July will mark the forty first anniversary of Emily Elaine White’s birth and the ninth anniversary of her passing. She is so missed by those of us fortunate enough to have known her.

I originally began this blog hoping to introduce my daughter to the wider world with a thirty-two episode (one for every year she was with us) book about her that I lovingly titled after a line from a line in a Nora Jones’ song, Seven. I call my book, “Emily, The Little Girl Who Sang Her Song To Anyone Who Came Along.”

The first July I did this blog in 2015 I posted a chapter of the book daily. I did it again the two following July(s). Scroll back and give it a look. Now, if you will, give a listen to a song about her, a song I shared singing with her, and a link to Emily herself performing one of her original compositions.

Your friend and fellow traveler,

Emily’s Dad,

David White
