Memories and More
Katharine (Kittu) Parker Riddle, class of ’35, wrote
a few words about her new book, "A Nourishing
Life" published by Pentland, 1999.
The process of writing my autobiography uncovered
significances in my life which I'd overlooked during the
years of living of it. As I look back, I can see that I've
been true to my roots, to the soil which nourished me.
It provided the courage to venture forth. From it I gained
strength to move into adulthood, to marry, to move from
one country to another, from one lifestyle to another,
from one group of friends to another and keep the world
view which I was originally given.
From the beginning
I was blessed by people of the Christian faith and also by
those whose faith included other ways of believing and
living. I was encouraged to see potential in people and
help develop it. And, I had to do the same for myself. It
was important to nourish the abilities I was given, not only
those of family and people around me. This realization
moved me into work and vision that has enriched and
nourished, not only my life but the life of our world.
