Despite or maybe because of all that, I think we recognize in each other a sacred intimate, someone John O'Donohue, author of Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom, would call a "soul friend." O'Donohue says the overworked word relationship as used and abused in popular discourse doesn't signify what the "sacred language of the soul" refers to as the real need one person has for another, a coming together full circle from "an ancient longing" into "one house of belonging."
