A Conversation- Of Sorts

 Matthew's mother was very methodical in her reading. The book I've just picked off the shelf to read myself contains an insert that details the history of her experience with the title. First she read a copy she'd borrowed from Woking library, then she bought herself a secondhand copy from Amazon, hoping it wouldn't contain underlinings in biro- and was pleased when she received it to find it didn't contain any underlinings at all. 

It feels like she and I are having a conversation.

I'm sorry we never met, sharing, as we do, an interest in what is inaccurately called "the Afterlife". Of course her curiosity has been satisfied now.

I wonder what she's up to.
