This Old Lady Travels Through 90 Years Of Her Life In A Single Day

 

A Day SS1 FI

This was the first and last day of their rest of their lives.

The old woman’s day is filled with simple pleasures: taking care of her sickly husband, getting out for some exercise, walking all the way up a flight of stairs, and showing kindness to others.

A Day SS2

Her day starts taking off the moment she sets foot outside.

She’s slow but hardy, and takes in her surroundings: a little girl buzzes by on a tricycle, a show down with a busy businesswoman, a teenage girl’s act of whimsy.

Through it all, she shows how much she appreciates the small, amusing moments of fantasy and reality.

A Day SS3

There are no grand gestures here.

It’s a sweet and poignant reminder about life, the passing of time.

Here’s how she fully appreciate each day like her last.
