Radio Tale #19: Settling or Settling Down

This personal narrative explores my first experience of becoming engaged and running a home, having things go sideways and knowing when it’s time to leave, and recognizing the difference between settling down (through choice) and settling (because of fear). Unlike most of the narratives, this radio tale is a combination of personal narrative and commentary.
