Recording Mommy - project #4
This project isn't really creative, but I argue that it's one of the most important for my family. I love how wonderful of a storyteller my mother is and with her stories comes our heritage, her strength, and her beautiful soul. I want to capture all of that for myself, my sister, and my daughter to remember. I decided to record my mother's conversations with us without her knowing so that I can have her candid remarks immortalized and how we all interact on file. Today, I asked her about my grandparents and their siblings. My mom makes excuses and delays writing down a family tree, so I thought the first recording should be of the history and people she remembers whom my sister and I have never met. What other ways have you made a family tree? What was the experience like for you to do it?
