3 Reasons Why You Won’t Fall Off the Face of the Earth

February 19th, 2013

Now that I have your attention.

July 25th, 2012

Once upon a time, in 1976, my father wrote me a letter because I wasn’t taking school too seriously.   In the letter he stated, “But there is a second and maybe more important reason for studying hard.

May 16th, 2012

Molly’s Rude Awakening is an unexpected delight in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. For over 25 years, I have traveled Interstate 94 between my home in Minnesota and points east, especially 50 or more trips to Detroit where I grew up.   I thought I knew every gas station, restaurant, coffee shop, and convenience store along […]

What Tames Fear?

April 18th, 2012

I resolved to skydive to celebrate my 50th birthday despite being a dedicated fear of heights chicken. On my 45th birthday, I vowed, after jumping off of a 32 foot cliff in Jamaica, that I would skydive next.

September 20th, 2011

Every time I hear the song Who’ll Stop the Rain by Credence Clearwater Revival, I think of Dennis. I knew him many years ago in Arizona.  I had taken my first job as a speech pathologist and he was one of my first clients. Our first appointment was in the late afternoon when almost everyone […]

The Last Bird Has Flown

June 5th, 2011

My youngest child graduated from high school last night.  As for all mothers facing the empty nest, this was a defining moment in my life. My children were  always my #1 priority especially since my husband’s job limited his time at home. I spent many hours alone-just me and the kids.  I did work as a […]

Why Glorify the Mouse?

October 11th, 2010

Why glorify the mouse? First let me set the context that compelled me to write about this today.
