If You Could Ask Me


My grandfather and I were very close, but he died when I was 8. I often wonder how our relationship would have changed over the years and what he would have to say about certain topics. Although he was born in the 1920s, mum always told me he was conservative in some ways but open-minded.

Several years ago, I started writing a book that I hope no one sees for a very long time. It’s title – If You Could Ask Me. Its entire purpose is that if I get hit by a bus, the kid knows what I might have said about a particular issue. I would like to think I’m raising her to be a kind, ethical, independent thinker but sometimes it’s nice to be able to get advice from your mum.
