    A week ago my aunt joined Facebook. First, she started ‘liking’ everything I posted -and I post a lot, I’m a Facebook addict. Then she started posting things herself: youtube videos, texts, newspaper articles, pictures… all sorts of things! I am frankly absolutely amazed at how fast she picked it up. And I just love to read and listen everything she posts there. This shows that you can be a grand-mother and still open to new technologies. Clearly my aunt has an amazingly fast ability to understand how social media work… not that I ever doubted she had it in her!

    My aunt lives far away from where I live so we do not talk as much as I would like to. But now, thanks to Facebook and my aunt’s openness to trying new things, I get messages from her everyday. This truly warms my heart. As my other beloved aunt -her sister- likes to say: what matters is not physical youth but being young in your mindset.

    Love you, auntie O. and anti E. 🙂
