Overview
A mischievous breeze drifts into the wild streets of New Orleans, where we find the enigmatic Marcus living in the shadows around Jackson Square. Though born into an old money, aristocratic family, his visits to their Garden District mansion are rare, opting instead for a life amongst the street people. Marcus is an uncommon homeless man, a tumbleweed, eschewing a normal way of living in pursuit of something else. He travels, he searches, he observes people and nature. He's looking for a better way of expressing himself, and a life that is more true to his ideals. His innumerable interactions with others, provides an inspirational message of dogged perseverance and belief in one's self. Marcus' search for peace of mind takes him through four different cities; New Orleans; Chicago; South Haven, Michigan; and Charleston, South Carolina. A story filled with wit, humor, philosophy, and a dash of hope, it is a tale that celebrates the human spirit, while it wrestles the issue of homelessness, with Marcus planting the seeds of possibilities into the world.
