Book Extract

Of the Solace

I know a very beautiful song. It’s hauntingly authentic. The songstress sings the words; “There are eyes above… there are feet below…somebody console me.” Her voice quivers and tells a tale somewhere between joy and despair, somewhere between knowing and hoping.

Solace is the consolation, the comfort that we seek in distress; that allays distress. We can also give solace to another. I am very romantic, and concerned with how we connect, and I have learnt that we can find more solace from one another than any substance, activity or avoidance. When we deeply hug, warmly connect, when we touch, hold comfort and console each other… when souls meet, we are one. All the difficulties of our humanness are shared. We find a shared emotional language, an emotional landscape from which we can build bridges of understanding and love.
