Words of Wisdom to Kick Off Another Week

“With my experience of social media, I thought that idiots were going to idiot.”

JK Rowling

I love this woman. Every time I read something she says, I think, “perfect.” Then, “I need to remember that and use it sometime.”

In this case, Rowling was talking about an upset that arose in some people’s minds when the director of a new Harry Potter play cast as Hermione Granger an award-winning actress, who happens to be black.

I love Rowling’s almost zen-like acceptance here. It’s just a fact: idiots are going to idiot. But thank goodness most of us aren’t idiots.

I wish I could see the play. It’s neat to think of everyone all grown up. And Ron and Hermione look great up there. I couldn’t ever really see Emma Watson and Rupert Grint together, but those two make sense to me. I’m feeling a little cursed myself, for living an ocean away from the West End.
