When I was in junior high and high school I dreamed of moving to Colorado. I was a huge John Denver fan and listening to that music and learning about him I was drawn to Colorado for its beauty. I also loved the idea of escaping from my mother who abused me emotionally and psychologically.
I use to imagine how fabulous it would be to start over in a place where – to play on that line from the TV show Cheers’ theme song — nobody knows your name.
So when I met today’s guest who didn’t just escape the way I dreamed of but she went to another country, I knew I had to learn more about her and have her on the show.
