The Woman in The Mirror

A friend from church directed me to this Washington Post article about “Aging in place.” She said that reading a torrent of age-diverse people sharing their powerlessness made her less lonely. The article features a song by Kora Feder with the lyric:

I look in the mirror and all I can see is a worried old woman in a young person’s body.

The strangeness of not recognizing oneslef in the mirror reminds me of the ending to James Joyce’s story “The Dead.”
