Mark Nepo is emerging as one of the truly significant writers and thinkers of today. Nepo has a singular way of distilling great truths down to their essence. In his own words, “We grow by great love and great suffering. It would be nice to not have to suffer, but suffering is. If we are sculpted by experience, suffering is the chisel. We are asked to lean in, to say yes to life, yes to difficulty, yes to joy. We have to be open to all of it." Moreover, during his cancer journey, Nepo relied on the power of expression and the writing process to keep him tethered to life.
