windows to the soul.

"you are young mom. 
'cause you don't have old skin.
well, except around your eyes. 
they're wrinkly like they're old.
all around the eyes."
-brennan

...
isn't it wonderful?
the eyes.
like you can look into them and they never age.
not a single day.
except for when they grow in their sparkle.
you know, like when you get a little more wise.
i love looking into the eyes of a 90 year old person.
the youngest and wisest eyes you've ever seen.
and it's like that skin that they're in has so many stories to tell.
all about how those eyes learned to look more wise.
