About Ruth


I have morphed and grown and evolved as much as this website has in the last decade. I am less concerned about fitting in and much more interested in exploring my relationship with the land and with my gifts as a human being on the planet. I no longer define myself by the work that I do to pay the bills. It’s far too narrow a definition. Nor do I define myself by what I have lost, though I used to feel I would always carry that shadow of grief. I’m still figuring out who I am and how I can contribute, this is where I share some of that journey.
