My grandmother died when I was 9. I have some memories about her, but the memeries is leaving me. I can’t recall the details as I used to. I didn’t meet my great grandmother. I know her from pictures.
When I become a mum, my daughter was born in Britain, so called BBC. She speaks more English than Chinese. What can she communicate with her grandmother? What I can tell my grandchildren about the family history?
I look back to where I come from, recall everything I can rememeber about my grandmother and great grandmother. They are just ordinary Chinese women. I even don’t know my great grandmother’s name. What was her life? What did she think and do?
I am trying to make a story about them based on limited informations.
I call it Chinese women, because that might be most Chinese women’s lives at that time.
