A Life Reflected

Le Miroir is the story of a life as reflected in the bathroom mirror. It's a lovely contemplation on staying in place while traveling through the experience of growing older. [via] [direct video link]

Wow. All the thoughts/memories/faces that passed through my head while watching - this is beautiful beyond words. Thank you!

Kind of jumped from middle-aged to old pretty fast.

Welp, I've decided I'm not going to get older. Nope. Happy the way I am now, thanks.

Beautiful sort nonetheless.

If you saw that post about the group of friends who took a picture of themselves every 10 years, you can see how it's kind of accurate.

It takes a lot of people to make a movie?

(SPOILER) Favorite jump was to the child at his feet, huge emotional punch for me there, really sweet. (end spoiler)

That was my favorite moment too and the cut to him burning his wife's photo and the kid never showing up again was like a knife in my heart.

Don't you hate people that take forever in the bathroom?
