Good for what ails you.

If you're 40-, 50-, or 60-something and wondering where the life force went, an ad on Facebook says to try this:

Pay no attention to the Facebook ad. Here's what the doctor actually ordered:

"Shine a Light," Martin Scorsese's Rolling Stones concert film, shows you the age-defying powers of talent, passion, love, and attitude.

You can't really say the Rolling Stones are looking good. But you can say they're looking better than I am.

And really, how they look is beside the point.

Mick's still got unbelievable moves and stamina to go with his ageless pipes. The rock and roll--even the really old music--is vital and exciting.

The next time I see the movie, though, my plan is to watch Keith Richards from start to finish. From (spoiler alert!) spontaneously giving his guitar away to blues god Buddy Guy to sharing frequent laughs with his mates to kneeling down and making eyes at the fans in the front row. the guy is pure love.

Whoever thought pure love would look like that?
