Yesterday, I had the great pleasure of meeting Suzi in person at a little cafe in the city where she lives. We had a fantastic chat and the time just sped by. Like Suzi, I could have stayed for hours longer, but alas, I had to go back to work. Isn't it nasty how work seems to get in the way of much more important things?
Suzi's a wonderful person, very caring and intelligent. We talked about our lives, our favourite bloggers (we have several in common), life in general, a tiny smattering of politics, and on and on. I look forward to seeing her again one day.
I guess it can be really great to travel for work--especially when I get to meet kindred souls like Suzi!
BTW, in the true spirit of encouraging each other (sometimes without even realizing it), I managed to get in a little time on the hotel treadmill because of Suzi. I had worked early that morning, then gone to a restaurant for lunch and then done some shopping (a good hand-made broom to clean our back patio and of course, some retail therapy: a pair of pants), but I still had some time to kill before heading out to the cafe. What to do: get on the Internet or get on the treadmill? The treadmill won. Why? Because I knew Suzi was out with her walking group. Thanks, Suzi!
