Welcome! I’m Tracy Rittmueller…
- I read,
- I write,
- I live,
- I love,
- and I explore various views of our world and its place in the universe, as represented in words (literature) across time and place.
By circumstance and, in my case, also by choice, I live my quiet life mostly outside the boundaries of American mainstream cultural values.
The assumptions behind the words and articles I gather together
will favor my core values, which I am learning to live more authentically in my journey as a Benedictine Oblate:
- Faithfulness to the practice of a Benedictine way of life.
I believe the universe is comprised of both material/visible and supernatural/invisible realities.
I explore both the “seen and unseen” through fiction, memoir, essay, and poetry.
I believe the acceptance of all reality adds richness and meaning to our lives, supplying necessary wisdom for us to become as beautifully loving–as exquisitely wonderful–as each of us was made to be.
Again, welcome! Your presence here honors me. Let’s connect–I respond to comments.
