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 [livejournal.com profile] curtana, and [livejournal.com profile] 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.

I have to confess that I first read her so many, many decades ago that I was startled to discover that she had only just died!

Oh No

I am sad, I really liked "A Wrinkle in Time." It's my most memorable book from childhood.

Sad...

I agree! I was startled by her passing.

Aww. I've been meaning to read A Wind in the Door for years; A Wrinkle in Time scared me, but I was probably too young for it back then. But it's obscurely fitting and comforting when someone who wrote so uniquely lives a long life and leaves so many accomplishments.

That's a beautiful quote.
