Growing in Place with Mark Nepo – The Edge

How Are You Doing Meeting the Unknown?

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

For today’s Growing in Place video, I’m reading my poem “The Edge” from my book Surviving Has Made Me Crazy. The parable explores the quartet of voices we all carry in us. If we can listen to them as a whole, it will help ensure that we don’t let any one dominate. I hope you enjoy the message for today. Stay healthy and safe!
