Since we've resumed rehearsals, I have been pleasantly surprised by the wealth of talent and enthusiasm that surrounds me. In many aspects of my personal life I am struggling to maintain my equilibrium. I've come to think of Elevated Grounds as a sort of therapy- as art often is, regardless of the medium. Even though being involved in a production entails its own complications, I find that this creative outlet enables me to dispose of my negative energy- as opposed to temporarily "forgetting” it. The amazing people that I work with in this journey that we're on allow me to maintain a positive perspective amidst the chaos of daily life.
