Crowning a Queen: Feelin’ Meg from “wrinkle in time”

Posted on: April 13, 2018

#AvaDuVernay created a movie that is best of all time.  based on the novel, A Wrinkle in Time, is fantastical and fun.   the story is so thoughtfully and deeply told that i’m still processing how much it moved me.

mostly i’m in awe of the 13 year old character, meg, played by storm reid.  she’s distrustful, awkward, fearful and unsure of herself.  but she’s also fiercely loyal to her family, intelligent and courageous.  her flaws are not weaknesses. they are present to help her. the key is that she lean on her strengths and not let the darkness win.  

i fell in love with how human a hero she is.  that’s why i’m crowing her a queen.   she’s become my role model for living a life knowing i don’t have to have it all figured out. but i can have faith that in the end i’ll be able to bring it ‘home’ with a glorious triumph.
