Questions in a Mirror

We know there are ghosts in the mirror, choose any mirror and look long enough - it is dangerous, but so is not looking. When my own apparition appeared there it felt like I was a passenger on a metro-line, seeing the oncoming tunnels, the blinking of daylight between the speeding darkness. I assume that we are all on a reflected journey, the ‘where to’ and ‘why’ might be on the other side of that reflection and those in that other place may be looking for the same answers. Like Saul melting into Paul on his way to Damascus, would we go blind or far-sighted by this looking? Can we really bear to peer into a mirror until the dead appear and we disappear? Will those we see be younger or older than our memories? When we stare into that bright unmasking will we be entering a tunnel or leaving one?
