In the book, Truck: A Love Story, when trying to describe Laurie Bieze, I wrote this:
There is Laurie, a woman who—I don’t know any other way to put it—glows with invisible light. With her shawls and sculpture work and barefootedness, she is the personification of an earth mother, but I have seen her rise up and put down a strong man while the rest of us were content to avoid eye contact and whisper behind our hands. Recently she told me she believes we are all energy created by a purposeful magnetism and that the catalyst is love. This may explain the invisible light.
Our little family is grateful to have been drawn into her orbit. It was beautifully crowded there.
If you didn’t know Laurie, this is a nice place to begin.
