Before I came to SAL, I worked at an integrative cancer care clinic as a naturopathic doctor. My favorite book as a kid was Go, Dog, Go! by P.D. Eastman—it contains everything a great book should: speeding cars, vivid colors, witty dialogue (“Hello!” “Hello!” “Do you like my hat?” “I do not.” “Good-by!” “Good-by!”), and it ends with a dog tree-party. When I’m not at SAL, I can be found in my backyard, either pulling weeds, watering the veggie patch and blueberry bushes, or sitting in the shade reading and watching the antics of the hummingbirds. (And writing a few words down in attempts to create a poem.) Right now, my favorite book is Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss—because she writes a haunting tale that features history (the moors, the bog people, the Iron Age), contemporary issues (nostalgic nationalism, abuse of women and children), and dark magic—all in 144 pages.
