This week marks the anniversary of both the birth (1 Jan 1956) and the death (4 January 2008) of the Irish poet and philosopher John O’Donohue …
We remember the poet with four of our favorite John O’Donohue poems …
to John O’Donohue’s work

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.
