When Malcolm Turnbull and Mel Gibson opened NIDA’s new graduate school the Prime Minister of Australia urged people to tell their stories. I quote ‘Telling stories, describing ourselves, dreaming about the selves we would like to be….that is as human as eating and drinking.’
I think that sums it up. So please write yours and don’t leave your offspring wondering what sort of life you and your parents lived and the joys and sorrows, successes and hardships you encountered on your life journey.
I look forward to reading and sharing many of the stories that arrived during our Christmas break.
