About:Sari Grove(just a bit)

Today someone asked me in an email a little about myself…I answered, then realized maybe other people would like to read some of that too…So here is an excerpt from that email response…

Sari & Joseph Grove at the Manse Inn Picton, Ontario, May 14, 2015

About age-I think that people just are who they are, that their personality just is a certain age group & they stay pretty much the same no matter what the clock of chronology says…

My mum is a 16 year old…Still have to force her to eat her vegetables…

A girlfriend of mine growing up was so mature early on-she got married & had children & a mortgage & a job, & I was still deciding which ice cream flavour I liked best…

I’m a child…Emotionally very immature…I see myself a bit in Sheldon from the Big bang Theory…very stupid about people but very smart about things…

My Dad was a baby too…Very smart but a baby when it came to relationship wisdom…

My Mum & my brother have great social wisdom, love entertaining, friends…

Joseph comes from military people…Hid grandfather served in WW1, then went to Oxford on a military scholarship, became a doctor, then served in WW2 in Nova Scotia here as a physician…Later opened up a bicycle shop(Grove Cycle & Sport)…

My credentials?

I went to a pile of universities, just enjoying learning things-I was very good at school…

Ended up calling myself an artist because I saw I’d have the most freedom there in that path…

You can do almost anything if you call it art…

I did more traditional art forms for many years, but always had a knack for medicine cause of my Dad…

It was a hobby…

I started developing a theory about how the body worked, which became the thing called the Grove Body Part Chart…

I showed the work to my art business coach in Colorado who encouraged me in that direction-though I was a maverick-an artist in medicine…

My first book got written to explain the chart…Createspace encouraged me to give it away for free online to get authority, an audience, word of mouth credentials…

I did thousands of people read it…

Encouraged & empowered, I wrote 7 more books, all free to read online…

Each book went further…

Book 5 gets into the brain, linking the brain parts to the body parts…

That was my ultimate goal when I was a child-brain research…

I have a new brain part chart(see attached) which links better to the body part chart-for people with concussions & other head trauma or other brain problems…Grove brain Part Chart

The art actually formed my skillset to be ready for this…

Art is so intense, so detail oriented, so difficult to succeed in, in causes you to work harder at things than usual…

Most artists are pretty intense about what they do…They have to be to succeed…

Joseph helps me alot…He gets medicine, but his opinions are often opposite to mine…So he provides balance…

I am a yes person, he is a no person…Which is healthy…Balanced opinions…

Which is why he gets credit on all my work…Without him I’d be too kooky…I embrace all sorts of kooky stuff…he says no…

(Biography chatter:from my Author Central page on Amazon-Grove Health Science is a series of 12 books now!) Hi...I'm Sari Grove...Sari sounds like Mary...Grove is the last name I took from my husband, 'cause it is a really nice name, & he was very very good looking, & I married him, & my maiden name, the name I grew up with, was "Slatt", which could be turned into all sorts of unfortunate words, which is why when I was looking for a mate, I sought someone with a cool last name...(I cannot tell you how many totally worthy men I had to ignore due to their last names being unmelodic or otherwise unsuitable...) Grove Canada is a pen name, mostly because when I needed a web address, I could not get Grove.com or even grove.ca, so I just got GroveCanada, due to a serious lack of imagination in that moment...It stuck, so I still use it...I thought this time, if I used Grove Canada as a pen name, that maybe you might look up my blog online, at GroveCanada.ca, & enjoy the freshness of getting information from the horse's mouth, up to the minute, rather than the instant obsoleteness that a book creates...Like a car depreciates as soon as you buy it-a book is old as soon as it is published...For a Virgo perfectionist, this inability to easily update, with a new chapter, with new research, causes me constant worrisome self-abnegating, consternation... I use those dot dot dot things, the etcetera symbol, at the end of my sentences, as a habit-you will always know it is me writing, you will always pause at the end of a sentence to think for a moment, you will remember that poetry is beautiful, & you will take everything I say with a giant grain of Pink Himalayan salt(since the grammatical error will irk you into that state of skepticism)! Love & Hugs, Sari ps. I became a Christian at the age of 21, which may seem like a non sequitur, & though my faith is decent my works may not really do justice to that title-but I thought I'd mention it, since my first name Sari always seems to force an assumption about my background-and though you would be right to assume that it tends to be a Jewish name, you might not be right in assuming that that is what I am going to sound like when I expound on some of my karmic principles or other ethical compasses I have developed...Not that I have done away with my past, it is just I have iced the cake with the new updated version-so if you wrong me, I may just turn the other cheek(New), instead of doing the eye for an eye thing back at you!(old)...
