The reflexes have softened and diffused. The eyes no longer have it, at least not without reading glasses. The musculature, that lean, taut, youthful body I misused so well, has retired to Memory Lane. What’s left is the “essence,” not the original. And we all know that “essence” in this age of zipless sex and eternal youth, does not pay the rent. I often find myself, in these moments of quiet desperation, saying that if brains were brawn, I would be Godzilla on roller skates. Is this the bottom line of the aging process? Is this what I have left, a premature dotage shoved down my shrieking throat? Look, I’m still a man, I still have these vital, lusty feelings. I want to reach out and touch and take and have. But when I reach out, there’s nobody there. I am last year’s model in this year’s wrappings. Used to be sure, and there were those times I was rode hard and put away wet, but still, I like to think, there’s lot of good mileage left.

About the Author:

Jack Turley has written scores of episodes and movies for television and once served as a staff writer for General Hospital, the second-longest-running daytime soap on the air. One of his TV movies (Peter Lundy and the Medicine Hat Stallion) was nominated for an Emmy and won a "Wrangler" award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. Another project, which Jack describes as his most difficult endeavor, was: Alzheimer's, Will I be Next? - a vivid memoir of his mother's descent into the darkness of Alzheimer's Disease.
