Friends from the Bottom

A tweet on my feed mentioned about the loss of a soul friend. It got me thinking that when we talk about the other half of us, we think of soul mates, but could that person not as easily be a soul friend. A bit of research pointed me towards the concept of anamchara, a soul friend who loves, guides, and listens to you. The Irish term took its journey through Christianity and Druidism. Through Christianity it is seen as part of the concept of the Desert Christianity where their love of being alone, heightens the specialness of friendship. And we all have a friend like that, the one we see rarely but know somehow they will always be there.
