I have two children: a teen son, 15 and a tween daughter, 11 and am happily married. My son is a creative, frustrated teenager who hates school and can’t wait to leave. He spends a lot of time at the beach or in the work shed out the back not doing homework. My daughter is a dancing socialite who has a better social life than me. She keeps us constantly busy with watching her dance moves and driving her to her various engagements.
I have worked part-time since children and am currently studying. I love food and luckily I quite like running and yoga too. I love to read and am passionate about social justice. We are adventurous travellers and lived as a family in Tanzania and India for a year in 2006. We have too many pets: a dog called Mojo that I adore, a cat named Lucy who ignores us completely, 2 turtles: Lucky Joe and Pearl and a couple of goldfish.
Why Sue Ann’s Balcony?
It’s from a leadership concept that if you are on the dancefloor you can only see what is in front of you whereas if you’re on the balcony you can survey the scene and get a better idea of the bigger picture.
In life we need to spend some time the dance floor getting a view of reality, as well as on the balcony in order to get perspective.
