Life is so much richer when you can appreciate the perspective of others. If you are lucky enough to have a grandparent (or two!) around, then I invite you to take a moment and ASK THEM QUESTIONS. I’m delighted to bring you another installment of my conversations with my Grandma Carol. She’s 95 years old, witty and wise and in this latest chat, we talk about her experience in WWII.
Why not take break from your inbox, your to-do list, and your buzzing phone to step back in time and hear first-hand what it was like many moons ago? Yep, that’s Grandma filing papers on the bottom of the photo and another picture with my Grandpa Greenie when they were newly stationed. (Cue the Andrews Sisters, please!)
Empathy is the most mysterious transaction that the human soul can have, and it’s accessible to all of us, but we have to give ourselves the opportunity to identify, to plunge ourselves in a story where we see the world from the bottom up or through another’s eyes or heart.
