The Hymns

‘After my dad died, when we traveled together from Zimbabwe, we would sit at the border and sing Neil Diamond. Her song though, my mother, is going back to the hymns. Her father was a preacher, my father was a minister, first a miner then a minister. When we were long distance driving, we always had a book of hymns. I would follow them in the book and she knew the words. And for kilometres we would sing them at the top our voices.’- Sue Hall
