mirror

On March 21, 2007 by alinaki

there came an old lady today at work to pay the electricity bill. and, as i was making the payment, she started talking. she was a cute old lady, small, and smiling.
but she said something i couldn’t forget: “aging is so ugly… you look in the mirror trying to remember the way you were when you were young.” so sad. and helplessly. so sad.
and now, wrinting this i remembered the video of a song of Leonard Cohen “Dance me to the end of love”. i wish i hadn’t, cause it was the saddest video i have ever seen. and i remembered my grandparents and how cruel life is in the end.
so, my smile has gone.
