The Universe holds us and tosses us about, only to hold us again.
With Things That Join the Sea and the Sky, Mark Nepo brings us a rich and compelling resource of short prose reflections to turn to when we’re struggling to keep our heads above water—and to help us surface and breathe into all of our sorrows and joys.
Readers explore 145 offerings from the acclaimed poet and teacher, gathered into 17 themes, intended to be entered individually or as an unfolding sequence. Here, Mark’s own personal accounts of “sinking and being lifted” serve as the seeds for each selection, each unfolding insight relevant to our own lives.
For those inspired, this collection also includes a guide to the practice of daily writing, with 100 compelling journaling questions to get us started.
