John O’Donohue: For One Who Is Exhausted, a Blessing
DECEMBER 31, 2017
At the end of another intense year, after two weeks fighting a difficult cold, surrounded by snow, light, and quiet, this poem by John O’Donohue made its way to the surface, sent to me by my beloved soulmate. Happy new year. When the rhythm of the heart becomes hectic, Time takes on the strain until it breaks; Then all the unattended stress falls in. On the mind like an endless, increasing weight. The light in the mind becomes dim. Things you could take in your stride before.
