  Hers are slow steps, mindful, deliberate as she is moving forward towards the hopeful unknown. Entering the familiar hallway of comforting constant, she passes through it in what was only second the day before. Now it is of a seeming hour, for she is so aware of the passing of time.

  As she inches along, to the left appears the aged mirror, that of faded glass which has become yellowed with life; softer, it now reflects her inner peace.

  The frame it holds together is called antique by some, it still containing a view of change and that of passing youth. Stopping before it, she is seeing a person anew, someone who is wiser. And upon her face filled with lines a smile is shown; standing there for only a moment, she moves on.
