MY QUALIFICATIONS: I am active. I am happy. I am old.
Certification: Birth Certificate–Born 3/18/1915


Please be informed I in no way have all the answers to aging well. Aging well has become a surprise to me.

Ruth’s Bio

It is my own active life in my mid 90’s that qualifies me to pass on what I have gleaned in the process of living these many years. I’ve had many life changes. I’ve been a commercial artist, twice a wife, a mother of two, an artist (painter), divorcee, real estate broker, yachtswoman, an entrepreneur and the published author of Keeping Ahead of Winter—4100 Nautical Miles Inside America, nonfiction for adults. Naptime Secrets, a two to six-year-old child’s color book and You and The Arts—Why Art Matters which is an EBook that will be in print this spring.

    Happy 96!!! My Mom is 93 and subscribes to a similar philosophy. I’m retired and loving it. Dancing, hiking, reading and being involved in social justice issues keep me going -Take care and peace -Lenore
