Periodically something really touches my heart and I find myself continuing to process the experience or how I feel. The film Amour is not action packed, suspenseful or humorous but accurately portrays the struggles of an aging couple. The love was obviously shared over decades and then the heartbreak of bearing witness to the mate who becomes incapacitated by health issues. Slowly following the stream that life has chosen for them… together.
Young love never thinks about this part of life. We think of growing old together but not about the harsh realities of a long life. But commitment is about sharing all the experiences of life… And if we are lucky our lives will have been full of love and loaded with laughter.
