"Ageing Love" by Joel Davies
Sixty years ago, Ingrid and Bert, my grandparents, got married. It wasn’t a big or flashy wedding but it sealed the love of two individuals who have been side by side ever since. Their love has seen good times and bad times, sickness and health, life and death. However it has grown stronger as it has aged, more intimate and tender than ever, all blatant when spending time with them in their house and within their life. Sadly with ageing love comes ageing, and as my grandparents grow older they not only remain companions but carers; with Alzheimers threatening to rupture what they have. But whatever happens to this love, I feel privileged to have lived around it and to have been able to capture it.
