In these clean, crystal poems, John Stone Lends a clarity and a piercing gleam to common observation. He has an intense world to impart, and he brings it to us with sensitivity, imagination, and power. There is a generous measure of wit, and his enjoyment of words becomes a gift that we can share. The soul of the poetry, however, is the healer's knowledge of life and death that can make an image resound.

In the Space Between Moments : Finding Joy and Meaning in Medicine. by Pranay Sinha (Physician) 

Call Number: Main Collection WZ 305 S617s 2020

ISBN: 9781723742668

Publication Date: 2020-01-01

Joy crams itself into spaces between moments that whip past briskly in the unceasing furor of health care. Attuning ourselves to those big and little joys can build resilience to deal with inevitable ups and downs of our professional lives. These (very) short stories in this intentionally short book seek to deliver this simple message. A tired intern, resident, or attending can breeze through the book in about an hour and return to work with a fresh perspective and a lighter heart.
