New parents are constantly reminded of how fast time passes. Anyone who has done it all before is stricken by how quickly childhood merges into adolescence, and how adulthood creeps in. It’s a revelation. Sometimes abrupt, maybe unannounced and always too soon.
This is why I love this gem of a video where Anthony Cerniello depicts a girl ageing decades in about 5 minutes. It perfectly captures that subtle, mysterious and elegant process that unfolds before our eyes – a process that has a feeling, but one that you can barely notice happening. The perfect reminder to cherish those moments from Day 1 – because they are all but fleeting and far too few.
As we watch Danielle, a child transforms into an elderly woman and the result is pretty powerful.
