A Pocket Full of Murder

A Peculiar and Wonderful Legacy

Judging by the flurry of posts on my f-list, nearly everybody on LJ knows by now that Madeleine L'Engle has died.

Among the numerous tributes I've seen to L'Engle's life and work, I especially appreciated the beautiful quote from A Wind in the Door chosen by curtana, and kalquessa's poem "Ananda".

Many people have been moved, challenged and inspired by L'Engle's writing, and I am no exception. She will be greatly missed.
