Fantastic. I’ve always wondered what it must be like. It scares me. I suppose it scares everyone at some point…

amazing work. Well done.
Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what the hell happened!
an unavoidable truth presented through mind and art, i salute to creator
Love this. I remember as a young adult sometimes I’d look in the mirror and see the little girl I once was. I imagine most of us see who we once were more than we see ourselves as we get older.
Betty, you nailed it. well done.

This is beautiful. I’ve had to learn a lot through gerontology courses, particularly about Alzheimer’s and the thought of people that have to go through that (both those afflicted and their caretakers) makes me pretty sad. I always hope that people had a good and full life before that.

I tried this out on my father, a few days ago with a mirror, after I had shaved him and done his hair. He was beaming, looking from side to side into the mirror and agreed, when I said he was pretty good looking! He doesn’t look bad at all for his age, but how can anyone be sure that a person with dementia sees a younger version of himself in the mirror?
