My First Post, My First Blog

Hello all,

This is a work in progress. I'll refine things as I go along.

Why the blog title? Well firstly, several of my other choices weren't available (Ruth truth, truth of Ruth, etc.)

By why not try Truth (emphasis capital T)?

Although I believe that truth is relative (at least for me, at my level, if not all truth), there are the little "t" truths and the big "T" truths.

An example: This morning, around 6, I heard that hundreds of Palestinians died in an Israeli attack (or counter-attack, but I didn't want all the details, so I stopped listening). Rather upset and distressed, I put on some New-Agey music and walked into the kitchen. I looked out the front window and saw that the sky was incredibly clear and full of the brightest stars. So, I gingerly walked onto the front porch (avoiding the snow drifts), and looked up. In that instant, I experienced a flash of Truth. Then, I heard traffic on the not too far away highway. That immersed me in little "t" truth (our home is close to the highway, I wish it were set back more, etc., etc.)

So, I'm sure if I keep up with this blog, it will continually morph, but for now, I will try for Truth.

Oh, and also, Truth rhymes with Ruth :-)


  1. Right On, my mothers name is Ruth and just a week or so ago, I experienced revelation, 'Ruth' was contained in 'Truth'!

  2. And interestingly enough, if you flip the letters of "Ruth" around, it spells "hurt". I don't know what that means, but I'm fascinated by anagrams.
