I have a very dear friend who married last weekend in New Orleans. He told me he was on the dance floor and looked across it, and his eyes met his partner’s eyes and…well, they’re now married.

That reminds me of meeting my husband. His eyes almost literally emitted sparks when we stumbled across each other in a parking lot on Eleuthera. I couldn’t see my eyes–there was no mirror–but I bet my eyes sparked as well.

How can you see into one’s eyes when texting or communicating on the computer? How can we feel close to one another on social media when we can’t see the other’s eyes? What is the saying–the ayes have it–uh, the eyes have it…
