As human beings age they have a tendency to view their early years as Idyllic. They remember when they were strong and filled with hope. This is only natural. Ruth is a woman who is of note due to her relationship with Moshe Dayan. Otherwise she is just another aging Leftie, who has fond dreams of picking flowers and hiking the hills of Jerusalem. Sadly due to her age, she cannot hike anymore and has no hope for romantic love. Her take on Zionism, which was once upon a time, Moshe centric, has become tainted as she became part of the perifery. A life of tragedy, and a son who has too be sent back to bed have left her rather bitter. Her adolescent dreams are gone, so she can just wax nostaligic about a world of hope and no flush toilets. Happy Purim Ruth, put on a costume and have some fun.
