Tune of the week

Wish you were here

Did they get you to trade

Your heroes for ghosts?

Wish you were here – Pink Floyd

This beautiful poignant song written by Waters & Gilmore about former band member Syd Barrett & his struggle with schizophrenia, brings to mind the feeling of detachment that so many of us experience in life.

Sometimes it seems easier to cope with the world by withdrawing from it physically, emotionally, spiritually.

We do this to hide our vulnerability, but it is this sane vulnerability that can allow us to connect … something vital for self compassion and social empathy.
