A little girl enthusiastically observes the moon through a telescope. She spys an elderly man living there alone. With childlike exuberance she finds a way to let him know that he is not alone as they connect on a heart level, bridging the great distance that separates them. The song "Half the World Away" sung by Aurora Aksnes, adds to the magic of this celebration of the ability of hearts to connect even when they are "half a world away." While this 2015 campaign by U.K. retailer John Lewis aimed to raise awareness around loneliness for the elderly around holidays, the message of connection is important for all of us today.
