I have been reading John O’Donohue’s Anam Cara. My business partner, Denise Bissonnette, resonates strongly with his writing and so I was motivated to go right to the source.
I enjoyed O’Donohue’s topics and expressions. Here is a very short section that has really stuck with me (it also made me think of all the work Micheal Stallard is doing on connection):
“The mountains never meet, but people can always encounter each other.” It is strange that two mountains can be side by side for millions of years and yet can never move closer to each other. Whereas two strangers can come down these mountains, meet in the valley, and share the inner worlds they carry. This separation must be one of nature’s loneliest experiences.
