Aging, in oneself or one’s surroundings, is nearly impossible to see until, suddenly, it has already happened.
Shiny new paint become dingy and marked; interiors and websites become dated, and as we see from these remarkable gifs, WE ourselves, slowly change…We are all in process. A remarkable series of gifs at My Modern Met perfectly show the process.
GRANDFATHERThe street silent,the wind fresh.The ninety-year-old manleaningon the bannisterof the stone bridgelooking at the river,or the riverlooking at him.Short in staturestrong of character,fierce grey eyes,k’iche’ voice.Cornerstone of the houseand cornerstone of the town.
