Mothers, Daughters, the Beatles, and Me
By Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson has been telling stories with GeNarrations for almost five years. During the pandemic, he has spent much of his time writing memoirs and diving back into piano playing (but please don’t ask for a concert). As an immigrant from the UK who spent a decade living in India and Arabia, Michael tends to view life in the USA a little differently even from his close friends. He sees this as a good perspective. Michael has also performed as part of Sidetrack’s “Outspoken” series.
