"I didn’t need to bury it. I had less years of her blanking me... less of her just looking right through me. I had a few years of being happy... I remember what that feels like.
You’ll forgive her... them... one day."
What if we could talk to our younger self, how would that sound? Would we understand how we've become the person we are today? Or would we wish we'd somehow never grown up?
Saluting Magpies is a tale of trauma, superstition, stories, and survival.
