This blog – Mary and Bob’s Journal – has been retired. All of the content here, plus new work, can be found at my new site: Writing Ruth.
I’m Ruth. Thank you for stopping by.
Mary and Bob’s Journal was my ongoing account of striving to practice a full, present, and compassionate existence.
Started in 2007 out of a love of writing, named after my grandparents’ diaries, the site hosted my ever-developing personal essays.
My work since early 2011 has been driven by my grief after the loss of a close friend. His untimely death has deepened and increased my urgency over the big questions like, what should I do with my “one wild and precious life”?
What are you doing with yours? I would love to hear.
