My middle name is Ruth.  I feel now like it might have been a prophetic appellation.   As a young woman in a quarter-life crisis who’s carving out a new life in a new home with her recently-widowed mother at her side (no, her name isn’t Naomi, but the situation’s almost the same), I’ve turned to my great passion–writing–to figure out the art of  gaining while losing.

Welcome to my blog.  Here  you’ll find sympathy and empathy if you’ve recently lost a loved one, if you are currently seeking a job, and if you’re looking to find a mate.    Posts on these subjects and more are soon to come.
