Feeling Empty after a Social Event?

I hate that feeling. Sometimes it’s an ache for real conversation that gets to the heart of things.

The following few stanzas from Oriah Mountain Dreamer express it…

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.
