What screws us up most
in life is the picture in our
head of how it is suppose
Pink ribbon alert and a few quiet moments to send love and support to Susie Lindau today, as she faces down one of life’s biggest challenges. Many know Susie, virtually speaking, from her ‘Use Me and Abuse Me’ parties, where she invites bloggers to drop in, leave a link, and check out other guest links. Hundreds attend. She visits every guest’s blog, and answers every comment, always with encouragement and good cheer.
When Susie is not blogging, dancing, skiing, hiking, running or taking photographs, she’s out doing something for someone — supporting family and friends, writing, making art, cracking jokes, swimming (in a river, mid-winter) to raise money for disabled kids. About the dancing? Susie dances every chance she gets: on New Years at midnight, at the Polar Bear Swim, alone with her dog, with friends at parties. She rain dances, snow dances, blog dances. It is contagious. Watch a video or two of Susie dancing and before you know it, you’re shimmying too.
With her usual energy, honesty and, yes, good humor, Susie recently let friends and followers know she has a rare and aggressive breast cancer, and will undergo a double mastectomy. Surgery is scheduled for today. A life long proponent of healthy living and eating, she is courageously writing about her experience.
Susie — Sending blue skies and best wishes for a speedy recovery!
