Besides the daily digest posts from Bonastra (the online L'Engle discussion community of which I've been a part for the past decade) I'm finding that my favorite tributes to the complex life and work of Madeleine L'Engle are coming through blogs. Standard obituaries just don't seem made for dealing with complexities. And it's most moving and illuminating to hear about how her writing truly influenced or shaped real people's lives, especially since she was such an intensely personal writer.
One of my favorite tributes so far is by Terry Mattingly and can be found here at the Get Religion website.
I also appreciated Janet Batchler's reflections on what Madeleine and her writing meant to her. Regina Doman's thoughtful and astute comment on that posting is also well worth reading and reflecting on.
If you've read other L'Engle tributes that you've found moving, feel free to post links in the comments. Or add your own thoughts and reflections...
