The Balancing Act


"This newly excavated city was built 5000 years ago," the senior researcher announced.

As Deena's eyes were fixed at the creative expression on stone, she looked like a woman possessed.

"Does this remind you of something?" her friend Rosy inquired.

"That's me!" replied Deena.

"You in your past birth 5000 years ago!" Rosy joked.


"No, actually the current me, present right now. Ever since I lost my parents, life has been a balancing act for me with lots of responsibilities... "

The stone art of the ancient city made Deena miss her parents.

She knew exactly where to find them.

  1. Looking through old photos can bring both happy and sad memories, but it keeps us in touch with our past. Nice take.

  3. My daughter got out my photograph albums only the other day to show HER daughter. I guess they'll have a good home when I'm gone!
