Eternal Echoes Need Eternal Reminders

I first encountered John O’Donohue when I purchased his book Anam Cara, which is Gaelic for ‘soul friend’. I’m a sucker for anything seeming to hark back to my ancestral past.

Described as a ‘poetic priest with the soul of a pagan,’ he certainly had a way with words, and I made a note to check out some of his other books.

And of course, I forgot.

Then tonight I came across this reminder, an excerpt from his book Eternal Echoes, and made my second note. I’ll act on it this time.

  2. I love John O’Donohue. If there are pubs in heaven I’m gonna buy him a pint or many pints and hang out with him. 🍺 Converting loss into memories that comfort us seems like unreachable alchemy to me these days, having lost so much to MND. But it’s comforting to think that the metamorphosis could happen.
