Asked her name when she was small, she would reply ‘Aya Wose’. Years ago I put together a book
recording her life alphabetically with pictures and words
Perhaps ‘Aya Wose’ might become an endearing nickname…as soon as she was able she insisted on Haven Rose…and so it is
The book stays here for now…in her daddy’s boyhood room…read occasionally to her little brother.
I should have seen it coming: ‘where is the book about me, Nona?’ asks Curren Ivor…and now I have Elin Mae……….
