Weekend Video Diversion: John O’Donohue

January 3, 2010

Truth be told, I’m not familiar with John O’Donohue, but I found this video to be amazing and a great start to the new year. Upon further investigation I learned that O’Donohue was an Irish poet, philosopher and former Catholic priest who passed away exactly two years ago today…

If you enjoyed the video and are curious to learn more about O’Donohue, please visit the archives of the NPR program Speaking of Faith (Now called On Being), where you can listen to Krista Tippett’s interview with him in a show titled “The Inner Landscape of Beauty”.

Hi Tim,

That was a great clip. I love the colors and the quotes. Very powerful. And since I subscribe to Krista’s show, I have that episode on my iPod so I will definitely listen to it. I have been behind on listening to her programs.

Hope all is awesome! :)

Hi Nadia: I hope your Sunday is going well…I was able to pull up the show that John O’Donahue was on and I’m amazed at how much Krista T. has on the Speaking of Faith website. Some really great stuff. Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very happy, productive week!

Hi Tim,
I agree with Nadia – the colors alongside the incredibly insightful words really touched me.

Thanks for sharing this! Also thank for the link to the show. I know you’ve mentioned her show to me a few times, so this is a good reminder for me to check it out. I’m really intrigued! I feel like I’m missing out. 😉

Here’s to 2010! Thanks for continuing to show me fresh content that is always so unique. I love this blog, Tim.

Hi Lori: I’m glad you enjoyed the video. It was a complete coincidence (or maybe not?) that the anniversary of John’s death was yesterday. As for Speaking of Faith, I have only recently been getting into that program and it is on its way of becoming must-listen radio for me. I think you’ll enjoy it. Thank you for the good wishes and, as always, your support here. You are awesome!
