John O’Donohue ( January 01, 1956 – January 04, 2008)
Anam cara’, which is Gaelic phrase meaning “soul friendship”. This is more than an alliance based on common interests or mutual exploitation. It’s not the kind of connection that arises out of the accident of being together in the same place at the same time day after day. With a soul friend, you feel an ancient affinity that stirs your delight in the mystery of life; you’re subtly inspired to know and love yourself with more grace than is usually available.
