My father was in a retirement home in the south of France the last few years of his life. I came to realize what happens to the elderly. Forgotten, taken away from society with no more use for them. I found it incredibly sad. I got to know them well. There was a particular piece of writing I read from a former resident.

I sit here by the window watching the world go by, my body failing me but my mind is still a teenager's mind stuck in an old body. Now nobody see's me anymore.

This is an ongoing project to recognize them and celebrate their life's.
