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

  2. jacklyn

  3. Betty

    Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what the hell happened!

    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.

  16. Silas

    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?
