Recorded via Zoom Webinar on November 1, 2020 – The theme for the night was FREE.

Did you ever go dumpster diving? Did you free yourself from the chains of your hometown and head out on the road? Did you judge someone in a judgement-free zone? Are you finally free from addiction after many years of trying? Are you child-free by choice or by circumstance? Did you free yourself from your corporate job and start a lemonade stand? Are you free on Sunday night?
