In a moment of possible abject folly a conversation that spiralled into something else earlier this week prompted me to set up a discussion group ‘Dead Persons Talking’ (on Linkedin) and a website http://www.deadpersontalking.com.
A year ago I set up a Book of Condolences website which drew over 100 responses and ten times as many views in a week.
Understandably so. I was recently asked to repeat the exercise.
What struck me, on a personal level, is my love for a long gone grandfather and the desire to continue conversations with my late father too.
What if they were still around and could join discussions?
I feel I knew both well, indeed I interviewed my late grandfather at length, transcribed this and put it in the blog http://www.getjackback.wordpress.com
The idea is to open the blog http://www.deadpersontalking.com to many authors who may wish to come in.
