About Me

My photo
Born in Santa Monica, California, I was raised in the small bedroom community of Sunkist Park that borders Culver City, Playa del Rey, Mar Vista and Venice. I attended Venice High School, West LA Community College and California Institute of the Arts. My studies included English, English Literature, Poetry, Creative Writing, Choir, Classical Voice, Shakespeare, Musical Theater, Television and Film Acting and Art History. In 1980, I relocated to the Pacific Northwest and in 1982 I married Kurt Wolf in Corvallis, Oregon. During the course of our long journey together, I have remained devoted to not only my husband, but to my friends and family, and the arts. What defines me most is my passion for expression through art. I’m an avid reader, writer and poet.I also enjoy painting and photography. Additionally, some folks consider me a pretty good cook.

"Chewing The Fat in Three Forks", Photo by Susie Rosso Wolf

Special Posting
In celebration of our five year anniversary of making the journey
 to this land of freedom and treasure, I have written a 
special tribute to life in Three Forks, Montana.

The Three Forks Song

Susie Rosso Wolf



Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take it day as it comes

Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take each day as it comes


Look out beyond the tip of your nose

As far as your eyes can see

See the mountains and the tree tops

And the raging rivers three

Hear the roaring of the wind

Whip through the prairie floor

Grab a cowboy by the hand

And dance forever more


Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take each day as it comes

Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take each day as it comes


Sit a spell and chew the fat

And don’t forget where your neighbor’s at

Lift two fingers off the wheel

Holler at your pardner as loud as you feel

Tip your hat when the ladies walk by

And you might earn a slice of pie

Ask the fella up the road

To lend a hand with your heavy load


Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take each day as it comes

Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take each day as it comes


Walk in your waders to catch a fish

Look up at the stars to make a wish

Grab your axe to chop an old tree

Ring the dinner bell and count to three

Throw on the saddles lets go for a ride

No matter what the weather outside

In wind or rain sleet or snow

A Montanan is always ready to go


Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take each day as it comes

Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take each day as it comes


Let’s go hunting to stock up on grub

And later on we’ll stop by the pub

We’ll dance in circles and sing along

Down the center and back all night long

A do-si-do then an allemande

Come on little lady please give me your hand

The moon shines bright out on the porch

With the romance lit by a flaming torch


Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take each day as it comes

Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take each day as it comes


The eagle swoops at the rivers bend

His breakfast galore that he knows no end

The sun just rises and the farmer prays

For a healthy crop and more warm days

But soon the snow shall fall and freeze

Then our sleep at night will surly ease

For we are hardy cold weather folk

Forty below and that ain’t no joke


Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take each day as it comes

Take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh take each day as it comes


Hard working men for an honest wage

Pounding nails or backhoeing sage

Just three months to grow food for one year

Wife seeds the soil though the freeze she does fear

The churches are filled with God fearing people

No you won’t find one fancy steeple

For we are simple Three Forks kind

The thought of leaving never enters our mind


We take each day as it comes comes comes

Oh we take each day as it comes

We take each day as it comes comes comes

We take each day as it comes


Three Forks takes each day as it comes

Oh we take each day as it comes

We take each day as it comes comes comes

We just take each day… as it comes.
