Elevated Grounds
_We tossed around ideas and brainstormed for our upcoming performance at the Ontario legislature.  This is a pretty big deal.  I think it is important for our politicians to recognize the importance of programs like Elevated Grounds.  What better way than with a strong performance.  Mental illness affects us all, even if at an arms-length level.  I think going to the Ontario legislature will, even on a small scale, help in the fight for awareness about issues surrounding mental illness.  Obviously one performance is not going to result in dramatic change, but perhaps it will pique the interest of some of our MPPs, enough to get them to stop and think about whether their politics and advocacy is sensitive to the plight of the mentally ill.  Now that would be something!
