About the Author
Ruth Ann Oskolkoff received a Certificate in Poetry Writing from the University of Washington, and an M.A. in Humanities from California State University, Dominguez Hills. Her fields of interest are sacred space, liminality, interfaith studies, and the spirituality found in nature. Ruth was born in Seattle and chose to return to it after several years away. She now lives and works in Seattle and finds a rootedness here in the steady rain, green trees, and ever present clouds. To her, writing poetry is a meditation of awareness, and observation of the flow of life and it passes both inside herself and in the world around her. She hopes the reader will be reminded of their own importance, and the critical beauty of each moment of life.
