Don't underestimate how much the people who come after you are going to know about you!
Today, our guest is Erik Vance. He is an award-winning story-teller and New York Times editor based in Boulder, Colorado. (lucky guy).
We came upon an article he wrote called: "How I Time-Travel to Parent My Adult Son." When we started to read it really had nothing to do with adult kids, but then it did.
Backstory: Vance says: “Once a year I record a brutally honest conversation for my little boy. " He says (and we confront him on this) that is doing it now because he thinks he is more interesting at this age than in 20 years! We don't think so!
Our Adult Kids and Grandkids: it is never too late and don’t underestimate how much the people who come after you are going to want to know about you. Think about it.
- If you could listen to your mother or father NOW and hear how they felt when you were a young adult - wouldn't you savor it?
- If you could hear the voices of your grandparents and learn more about their journey - what a gift!
I think all of us agree that we would love to hear the voices and experiences of our parents and grandparents - honest talk about their lives and struggles -- and as Erik said it can only help them feel like they can do it too.
It's not too late. We are going to give it a shot and hope that this interview with Erik encourages many of our listeners to do the same,
Thanks so much to Connie Gorant Fisher, our audio engineer.
