Day 61: A Rally in Kingston, Mon



Outside of getting caught in a wee monsoon en route from Brighton to Kingston,we arrived in time for our rally in the Queens University town. Many of my pals had gone to Queens,but with my marks I was told to proceed to the University of Manitoba.A reception of about 2 dozen met us at the Providence Care Hospital Foundation and director Dr. Roumen Milev greeted us with an introduction.After speeches a self confessed mentally ill woman had the courage to take the mike and speak about her traumas.She insisted that luck played a big part in her survival,as well as the Mental Health Association for offering her employment.

About 630 we headed to our campground ,a behemoth of a site,practically full of all kinds of motor homes and campers.Again our stay was comped and Gin presented the owners with a copy of Choosing Hope. A simple but elegant mushroom pasta and mixed salad,was enjoyed followed by tea and baked goods left over from the rally.Most agreed it was a reading night and I finished off Susan Riley's interesting story of her fathers suicide,We Watch the Waves.
