What matters in this world? We are all always asking this question whether we realize it or not, and it's a brave act to honestly and intentionally hold this question. The words and images gathered in this issue give space for the writer, artist, and reader to ponder our mortality and our meaning in this life together. You'll find Paula Harris' winning poem from our 2018 Poetry Prize, and the runner-up poem by Clemonce Heard titled “Our Hands are Bowls of Dust.” With stunning fiction, nonfiction, art, and more lovely poems, we explore how we are all formed by the earth and eventually and sacredly return to it.
