Poet, NPQ contributor, and Edge Leadership member Anastasia Tomkin reads her poem, “Please don’t tell me that there isn’t a God,” from her beautiful collection, Delusions of Grandeur. “Poetry is an ancient form of self-expression that benefits the poet as much as the audience. There is something truly magical about relating to someone else’s vulnerability and candor, it can be really comforting.”
