    Ruth, you really deserve all these accolades, especially after a long, unassuming and unpretentious “career” as a “writer”. You are my inspiration and undoubtably have left a seriously positive impression on many other people who you’ve interacted with, and I’m especially thinking of those young folks you always try to reach out to, whether it be in a formal classroom type setting, or “on the bus” in the greater Metro Vancouver area. I’m ordering a copy of your new book tomorrow! Take care. Roger.
