From the Bauer of a Larch in Autumn (Mental Health) – Story #12 Stories from the Hearth

Avery is about to turn 28, which means that soon she'll have lived longer than her father, the legendary rock-star Kash Bauer, ever did. She's been dealing with that fact all year, and this morning she can't seem to escape it. By the boughs of a larch in autumn, Avery Bauer seeks the answers to her questions. Dealing with depression, mania, and suicide, this is a story about mental health, family, and the healing power of closure. This episode is dedicated to the memory of my friend, M.S.CW: mental health, suicide, reference to drug useStories from the Hearth is an immersive storytelling experience ft. truly original fiction and thoughtfully produced soundscapes.
