The Summit of the Wonders

This is a wonderful video which describes in only two minutes the life of a woman, “the grandmother”.

Using only a few old black and white photographies, she talks about Family, Love, Life... 

The grandmother talks in Spanish, but her words are subtitled in English.

Summary (by Jaime Royo-Villanova)

Some things are unique, precious.

They exist at the whim of Nature.

This is “Grandmother”, the taxonomical record of the Miracle of Life.

A baby laughing, plenty of enthusiasm and passion.

A sixteen years old mother.

A girl growing up and falling in love.

At the peak of the mountain, her husband looks at her,
staring, in ecstasy, without pressing the camera button.

Finally, he does. Both of them are there, forever.

She said: “This is The Summit of the Wonders”.

At the End.

We shall not cease exploration.

And at the end of all our exploring...

will be to arrive where we started...

and know the place for the first time.
