After reading only a little I knew why I had to buy the Morrison book, (which was expensive for me)…to hear her many words, spoken over a long life, that give ultimate value to the Word and its redemptive qualities.
She has such a unique voice that she calls up something different in me than anyone else has, and it is a bit like waking, like revelation, like not being fully awake but coming awake, and yet lost in that area of not being quite lucid yet.
I often jot quotes from books in a journal but I couldn’t pull out the things she wrote that moved me most because they wouldn’t have it. They have to remain whole to be what they are. She has no sound bytes but what happens with the few sentences you can pull out, is you get a reminder from them but not the whole wallop over the head that says something you can’t repeat and not only because you can’t remember and do not even know, but only for it having spoken to you way down deep.
Returning to “What Moves at the Margin” later, from my own thoughts came these odd feelings that I could join her in my way – not as intelligently, not from a place of being as educated or well read, not from any of the places she has been, but from the places I have been.
This, I would guess, is the whole point.
