Embarcadero Street
When things drop out in life..sometimes a helping hand is there in the most unexpected place. Sometimes all hope seems lost and all rules go out the window. In that darkness, given no other option but to remain open, people finally find a reason to live. Sometimes...reaching the end of the rope…..letting go into a deep fall into that darkness...people learn to fly. Set in San Francisco, this episode is about finding hope in a hopeless situation.

Shining Stars
We all have a place we go to in our imaginations to seek solace and peace. For me it was a field underneath shining stars free from worry, chaos and conflict. Join me as I tell my story of running away and the song that was inspired by my place of solitude, "Shining Stars".
