An Intimate Interview with My 93 Year Old Grandmother
A year before my grandmother passed, I took a camera to New Orleans and sat with her for a few special days. We discuss her love for opera and beauty, romance, ‘sexy love,’ her anti-feminist ways, family…and more. I hope her beautiful heart helps bring a little light to the present world. Make some tea and please join us! ????
In honor of Women’s History Month and all the incredible women who came before us and continue to inspire our spirits.
Please share stories about your ancestors or any women who have helped shape who you are today in the comments. I love hearing your stories!

What a beautiful keepsake! This makes me wish I had done this with my grandmother. She was also a New Orleans southern woman. Such class & grace! My heart is bursting with love & joy, I can hardly imagine how you must feel! Also, your voice is beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing!!
Thank you so much Danielle, I really appreciate your generous warmth and kind words ????
I really enjoyed this interview with your Grandmother so much!
What an inspiring lady she was! And continues to be!
She exemplifies the kind of wisdom that can only come with the
Passing of time in life.
Yes! That wisdom is hard earned sometimes yet certainly something to strive for ????
What a great testament of respect and love from generation to generation. Adele Uddo, at 93, carries the spirit of youth, the thrill of a young woman and the wisdom and maturity of the Crone, (great female elder). She brings forward clarity from inside out, respect for herself and others and a joy for life, art and beauty. You two are cosmically connected far beyond your sharing of the same name:)
Your description of her is beautiful! And so true. She embodied many aspects and archetypes. Something to strive for in a life… Thank you for this loving reflection ????
