Windows to the soul

If the eyes are the windows to the soul, what does it mean when a person's eyes are always burning from sleep deprivation, spending too much time in front of a computer screen or too much time analyzing small print?

Open your eyes! Life is too damn short for all work and no play. Besides, it makes Jack a dull boy, and if you've read or seen The Shining, you know that you don't want your writer friends walking around with 500 pages of one proverb. Have a great week everybody. Big Love!

Is this it? Where are my panties?

We are born. And then we have mid-life crises. Of course, there's a lot in between. But right now, everyone that I know between 40 and 50, is thinking, as David Byrne thought, "How did I get here?"

We want to remember, "In your eyes, the light, the heat," and how we felt watching John Cusack woo Ione Skye in "Say Anything." "In your eyes, I am complete."

We don't want to think, "Is this it?"

We still want our romance. Hell, I want that "Sixteen Candles'" birthday cake, to kiss cutie pie Jake. He can hand me my panties any day. (Remember: "My little brother paid a buck to see your panties.")

Here's a question I'll throw your way: What keeps you young? What keeps you romantic? What keeps you bouncing and hopping and loving life? Lay it on me!
