It wasn't just about the workshop but I had offered the lovely Lynette a bed at our place while she attended the workshop. This was also an extraordinarily delightful experience. Having her to stay felt a little bit like some delightful Christmas fairy had climbed down from the tree and sparkled her way through our family. We all enjoyed her company.

But this woman ... Dr Brenda Davies led us all on an exquisite journey through these last few days. I'll write more as soon as I find the words.
