The One Life We're Given: Finding the Wisdom That Waits in Your Heart

A poetic and philosophical book about life. Although it does not discuss immigration directly, it does highlight themes of migration, connecting to others, and finding meaning through Mark Nepo’s stories and metaphors. He writes, 'While we all have a path we must follow, we will all be beached at one time or another. And when we find each other stranded, the exercise of compassion demands that we interrupt our lives to return each other to the deep. When we’re too exhausted to uphold our differences, there’s room enough for everyone.'
