Like father, Like daughter …  I really don’t know the significance of all of the Groups my Grandmother Ruth belonged to, and it has been difficult to track, but she was definitely tuned into the ‘Smith” culture and a member of: Junior Usher, Basketball Team, G. & F. A, A-O-H, Omega, Pledges and Golf Team and the Biological Society.

We never know what’s ahead … Remembering Ruth and her calm, dignified & down to earth demeanor

when I was so young, and she was so old, the charmed life of her youth just a memory.

About Stories, Old & New

My background is in Public Relations with a B.S. from Syracuse University. I would like to publish "Rabbitwild - A Shelter in the Wilderness", written by my Great Grandfather, William S. Wicks, a gifted early American Architect and Naturalist. Wicks, a member of the first group to purchase 100,000 acres of Adirondack Wilderness with the idea that it should remain a "forever wild" preserve, in fact designed and built "Rabbitwild" within the Adirondack League Club. And so, this blog isn't about me at all, but about remembering Wicks, his legacy, love and loyalty to natural design. By happenstance, he created the same appreciation in me for all that is beautiful, by nature.
