Skyping with my dad who lives in London, England. It’s his birthday soon, and I’ve just told him that I will be sending him a picture of me with long hair, making faces, and jumping - three things he disapproves of.
- “Oh S., would you get some dignity please?”, said he.
I called my grandmother last week. She’s 93 years old, so she’s getting quite fed up with this life of hers. When I ask how she is, she usually responds ‘oh, I’m surviving’.
But this time she cut me off halfway through our conversation, ‘Sophie, will you help me get ready to die?’
Yes, I will. Of course I will.
From “A Light in the Attic” by the talented ahead of his time genius that was Shel Silverstein. Being a parent gives me great excuses to read him with silly voices.
Sometimes it’s hard to trust that things won’t turn out the way they’ve always turned out.
Sometimes it’s hard not to be hurt by the idea that you might get hurt.
Sometimes it’s hard not to believe that believing isn’t enough.
Let me be wrong about everything I know.
