I’m a, mother, sister, Aunt, daughter, former social worker, educator, friend, and mimi. While raising my children, most of their lives, as a single mother, I continued my education. My three children, Jenny, Grace and Taft all have their college degrees. I have my BSW, M.Ed.. Benny and Pete are my grandsons and unfortunately they live about 9 driving hours from me. I love the men my daughters married as if they were my own sons. My son, well, he’s on the prowl for a woman who I will someday love like my own daughter. I’m living where I want to be living, in sunny spectacular Colorado. My last stint was in Minneapolis, where I loved fishing with my awesome old fishing buddies on Lake Calhoun. When not reeling in giant muskies, I worked at the University of Minnesota and for an American Indian agency in the inner city of St. Paul. However, after 6 gruesome dark winters, I headed for the sunny mountains of Colorado. I have have enjoyed many years reaching out in communities assisting, educating, and learning from, hurt families so that we might lead happier, healthier lives.
I got the idea of using the title, Falling Rock for my blog, while driving up the mountain pass several times a week to run my errands. About every 3 miles yellow signs would spring up warning of falling rocks. Sometimes I would think, is it actually worth it to take the risk of being injured or killed by a falling rock just to get to the “city above the clouds?” My life has been full of adventures. And in most of my adventures, I have not come out unscathed. I’ve dodged lots of “falling rocks” for the past several decades. These trips up the pass are absolutely worth the risks and may you safely dodge the falling rocks along your journey.
If you choose to log on and go on my adventures with me, I’ll share some heartwarming stories of family and friends. I’ve been known to be outspoken, so I may rant and rave a little. I have an eclectic penchant in terms of politics, style, food, wellness, and people and can’t wait to learn more about you through your comments and shared links.
