Spring Perspectives: Listen to Krista Tippett Discuss Time and Change with John O'Donohue
Time runs silently by as we rush about, yet soon the actual proportion of passing time will walk unexpectedly into your door - it's in the nature of things.
This delightful conversation about life, and where we find ourselves, will shed some interesting deeper perspectives on any recovery process - recovery from any illusions you may have carried with your previous understanding. John reads some of his poetry and comments on his book Eternal Echoes: On Our Yearning to Belong
Listen to John talk about the "evacuation of interiority" - the loss of the internal perspective.
You will much enjoy John's delightful Irish brogue, and will find yourself fascinated by how he simplifies complex issues. Krista [with American Public Media - Speaking of Faith ] is the perfect companion for this interview, one of his last before he died in Jan. '08 at age 52.
You will enjoy listening to this one, about 52 min duration, - no dull moments, beautiful images.
