When the Rocks Sing is unique among books about grief. It places side by side the voice of a man who lost his wife to cancer and the voice of the grief counselor who walked the road of rebuilding and resiliency with him. Rocks addresses a variety of topics that may speak to your experience or your desire for healing and moving forward. Those topics include harnessing resilience, facing grief head on, embracing loss as an integral part of life, staying present in the midst of trauma, de-stressing in healthy ways, reaffirming or discovering a new sense of purpose, helping others who experience a loss, and much more. Join Living Journeys ED Julie Reid, local counselor Laura Scales, along with Marv and his co-author and grief counselor Carol GoldfainDavis for a discussion on topics addressed in the book.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
