“Creatures of a Day”
A book by Dr. Irvin D. Yalom
Yalom doesn’t provide solace, but instead offers a kind of companionship in facing the truth. To him, our inescapable, shared fate is beyond consolation and the only thing to do is to look straight into it, unflinchingly, and recognize it as a universal experience…
“Creatures of a Day” is a touching meditation on the ephemeral nature of life, and beautifully illustrates that when in the midst of another human being’s darkness, we should worry less about shining a light, and endeavor more to simply hold the person’s hand, and stay in the darkness with him or her.
