Years ago, a friend introduced me to the work of John O’Donohue. His book, To Bless The Space Between Us, took my breath away.
Who was this priest turned poet?
I grew hungry to know more about him, as many of us do, when we feel a kindred spirit connection. Then I learned he had passed away. I felt such a sense of loss, even though I had never met him.
I listened to a talk on iTunes of his at the Green Belt Festival and OMG his voice! His voice is so nourishing. If you know John’s work then you and I understand each other well. And you get why I am posting this. Have you ever heard of him? If not, I encourage you right now in this moment to click the link and listen to his interview here.
Check out his website. I play his sound tracks in the background when I am having a hard day and reach for his books when I have no more words. This world is such a difficult place to understand and experience. His words bring healing in any emotional climate.
