Growing in Place with Mark Nepo – The Wind Phone

Making Sense of Our Grief

Thrive invites voices from many spheres to share their perspectives on our Community platform. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and opinions expressed by Community contributors do not reflect the opinions of Thrive or its employees. More information on our Community guidelines is available here.

For today’s Growing in Place, I want to share “The Wind Phone.” This is a short story in my book, DRINKING FROM THE RIVER OF LIGHT, about how one courageous man found a way to make sense of his grief and help others those who lost loved ones in the March 11, 2011 earthquake in northeastern Japan.

May we all find peace now as we allow ourselves to express our grief during these times. Please remember that no one person can wrestle from the Earth the song of how we can survive together and no one voice can sing the chorus. We need each other now more than ever. Love, Mark
