Running Time
50 Min.


"Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet / confinement of your aloneness / to learn / anything or anyone / that does not bring you alive / is too small for you." David Whyte is a poet and philosopher who believes in the power of a "beautiful question" amid the drama of work as well as the drama of life, and the ways the two overlap. He shared a deep friendship with the late Irish philosopher John O'Donohue. They were, David Whyte says, like "two bookends." More recently, he's written about the consolation, nourishment, and underlying meaning of everyday words. (Original Air Date: April 7, 2016)
