Write family memoirs in ISO
Most of us have been in isolation for 6 weeks now. And we are probably well and truly over it! Time for a new project. Let this be an opportunity to find out about our older family members.
I recently read an article by a SMH journalist who asked her elderly mum how her parents had met. Her mum was some distance from her so their only contact was over the phone. What resulted from the call was a touching recount of her parents' early relationship that the daughter had never heard.
Such conversations can be deeply satisfying and meaningful, but what an opportunity to gain stories from our older family members!
