Mr Wylie is a much beloved member of the Ruta Community. An elder of the tribe, Wayne has a calming/centering effect on all those around him. Concerning his chess opponents, Wayne told me, he was looking for unique and interesting games rather than "worthy" opponents. Most of us had our "trials of life" and were figuring a way forward. Wayne appeared to know which path to take. He was the first to welcome me when I walked into Ruta a stranger.
