Monadnock resident praises Moore's soul choices

For the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript, under the headline "Honoring the spirit in nature", Camilla Sanderson writes about moving to the Monadnock region of New Hampshire:
"A couple of years ago, after we moved to this area full time, I attended a talk at the Milford Unitarian Universalist church by local author Thomas Moore, who wrote the New York Times bestseller Care of the Soul, which has just been republished in its 25th anniversary edition. In that talk, Moore discussed two essential elements in caring for the soul. One was home. Are you living in the right country, the right region, the right neighborhood, the right community, the right home? I love the idea of making sure your soul feels at home.
And I was tickled to hear him say that the second most important element in caring for our souls is food. How are you nourishing yourself with love? What foods are meaningful for you? He talked about how chopping vegetables is such a meditative practice. And the deep pleasure of sharing food with loved ones."
She describes the restorative nature of the area.
