We can find one another in our loneliness, in the grief, we can find one another as we grieve, and we can even build a togetherness and a belonging.Grace P. Cho
In this episode, my conversation with Grace P. Cho starts out by touching on the topic of identity and how many of us often hide pieces of who we are, based on the boxes that people put us in or that we put ourselves in. Grace goes on to share her journey of becoming a poet and also shares the story behind her first ever published poem in the Voices of Lament book project. Our discussion then moves into the various forms of artistic expression and how every form of art is a way for people to express the emotions they are feeling, whether it be grief, joy, pain or happiness.
