Barbara Ruth is a long time poet, a medium time memoirist, and a relatively new photographer. She is delighted to have her work appear in Barking Sycamores. She has a deep affinity to trees, and delights in discovering found altars as she makes her way in this perplexing world. She used to call herself neurologically quirky, as epilepsy is only the most conventional way to describe her neuroatypical brain, and doesn’t begin to encompass the whole of it. She is blessed to have found and by part of the NeuroQueer community.
