"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

A Wrinkle in Time

‘Wrinkle in Time’ author L'Engle dies at 88

When I read the title of the article (linked above), I rememebered right off the bat the name of the author, Madeleine — something a bit remarkable nowadays with my memory usually soooo bad.

Together with the name, a flood of girlhood memories, of being immersed in books, and this one of my favorites.

And it's funny, because just the other day, the image of the scientist mother cooking dinner in her lab, much to the dismay of some of her family, came to mind, and I was trying to remember from which book it came...

A Wrinkle in Time hardcover, 1960s (same cover as first edition except for addition of the Newbery Medal)
