Daily Prompt: The Ghosts In Your Dashboard – Anam Cara


I’ve tried a few times to write about Olivia. They were too sad. They are the ghosts in my dashboard. We were both so sad when we first met, suffering from loss of those we loved but we helped heal each other.

This is from John O’Donohue’s wonderful book To Bless the Space Between Us A Book of Blessings.


For Friendship

May you be blessed with good friends,

And learn to be a good friend to yourself,

journeying to that place in your soul where

There is love, warmth and feeling.

May this change you.


May it transfigure what is negative, distant,

or cold within your heart.


May you be brought into real passion, kindness,

And belonging.


May your treasure your friends.

May you be good to them, be there for them

And receive all the challenges, truth and light you



May you never be isolated but know the embrace

Of your anam cara.


For Olivia my anam cara, my soul friend.
