Wild West Contrasts


Ruth reflects on a recent visit made to the U.S interior to meet a new granddaughter and explore the contrasts of a little known region of the former American Wild West. The contrasting landscape, both natural and in terms of its local communities, is illustrated through poetry and photographs.


Happily married with two daughters and now a granddaughter, Ruth has worshipped and been an active member of the congregation at St Martin’s for the past thirty years taking particular interest in children’s ministry.  Since 2012, she has further supported the church in my capacity as a licensed Lay Minister.  She worked for many years as Primary school teacher prior to my retirement from the profession in 2013. My interests focus mainly on creative arts, including music and poetry, which play a part into expressing and sharing my faith with others.
