It is said that there is no such thing as a coincidence, but if that is the case, I would like someone to explain this life event to me.
In 1996 when I had my broken bones accident, as I like to call it, I spent a lot of time watching television when I wasn’t doing therapy.
One evening, author, Madeleine L’Engle, was being interviewed about her many books, including “A Wrinkle in Time”. I was entranced with her demeanour and the title of that book. It was an old book, out of print, and very hard to find now, she told the interviewer.
I promised myself that when I was out and about again I would go to The World’s Biggest Book Store in downtown Toronto, to look for it. That store is renowned for having hard to find books.
One day, when I had graduated to crutches, I went to visit my Aunt in hospital. My husband dropped me off at the door and went to park the car. I meandered into the gift shop while waiting for him, and came upon a basket of books on sale for 25 cents each. They were in a complete mess from people rooting through them, and I decided to tidy them up.
The first book I picked up was A WRINKLE IN TIME by Madeleine L’Engle.
How do you explain that?
