I first met Linda Chase Broda in London Chinatown in a restaurant at a meeting to set up the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain in the early 1990s, in which she became very active.
I then had the good fortune to stay with her in Manchester through a connection with a tai chi student. She had allowed a film to be shot in her garden with a then student of Erle Montague. She had a fantastic tai chi studio at the back of her house which is where I saw some of her tai chi poetry. It was great.
As is so often the case we move on in life and I lost contact. She and her poetry came into my mind last week so I looked her up on Google to discover that she had sadly passed away in 2011.
Her website is www.lindachase.co.uk and you can read an article about "letting go" here.
Her tai chi inspired poetry can be found in The Wedding Spy.
