Well it’s a historic moment in History…

Let’s not carried away, but it is the first time we have had a guest post!

You might remember earlier in the week, I wrote a story for the Calgary Beacon about a dance performance called Something to Say happening from April 4-7 at the Vertigo Theatre. You can read this story here http://beaconnews.ca/calgary/2012/03/something-to-say-says-something-about-poverty-in-calgary.

The producer and the director of the show is Connie Jakab. She has her own blog called the Culture Rebel you can read this here http://conniejakab.com.

Connie has been very open on her blog about her struggle with stuff. So I asked her to write a post about this from her perspective. Hopefully this will give you something to think about going forward and talk about.
