New Poet

I found John O'Donohue through a visit to Julaine Lofquist-Birch's blog where she has his Gaelic Blessing posted.

Did a search and found this:

I would love to live
Like a river flows,
Carried by the surprise
Of its own unfolding. --John O'Donohue

I've finished all my library books and have my new ones to take with me, but I think I'll order something by O'Donohue.


  1. Don't you just love John O'Donohue's writings?

    I've been trying to join Artful Quilters Web Ring with no success. I'm fine until "insert HTML code into the blog's URL." I'm lost then - do I have to wait to be accepted?


  2. I'd like to recommend his book, "Anam Cara" - he came to speak in Rockford, IL a few years ago - I wanted to just run away with him, maybe be a groupie or something..... His voice, with this calming Irish accent was so reassuring.


Good to hear from you!
