I wasn't surprised by some of the things my 94 year old self had to say to me, and I was greatly surprised by others.
She said: Things, my dear, are both more and less complicated than you imagine them to be.
She told me to be grateful.
She told me to always, always strive to tell the truth.
She told me to take care of other women, because we're not going to get anywhere if we're not taking care of one another.
And then she told me that I should really learn how to roast a chicken.
