"Mark Nepo is a Great Soul. His resonant heart - his frank and astonishing voice befriend us mightily on this mysterious trail. These are words to live with, by and among - with deepest gratitude." - Naomi Shihab Nye "... these poems offer articulate revelations about life, about being human, about what is most often left unexamined, unspoken, and therefore left unknown. This book is unrelenting, thrilling, achingly rough, palpable... a portal filled with life... to which I bow." - Saki Santorelli Executive Director, Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School"
