I met Sue in New York sometime near the beginning of this century at a three-day training course. She was very noticeable - tall, elegant, and sophisticated - she radiated a powerful, positive force.
Completion of this course included a listing in an online directory…Sue and I were obviously connected, because our bios were switched! For a short while I was credited with a lot more knowledge and experience than I actually have, and all I could say about my temporary alter ego was WOW! I am sure Sue was surprised to be listed as a former exotic dancer!
It was exciting to have so many qualifications, even though the mix-up was short-lived. We really bonded the following year in Seattle at another course and once I figured out that there was more than one Birmingham in the States, I visited Sue in Michigan from Toronto. On one of those excursions, I attended her Laughter Yoga course and that practice has been a delightful and enriching boon to my skill set.
Sue is an inspiration, a great and generous friend, a consummate life student and devoted educator. Her humour and life experience make her a wonderful compassionate leader.
Lots of Love and Che-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-heers!
