MY DAYS by Kevork Kalayjian One click! The stapler joins the pages together like the days in my life days are added on the stack some are empty; some are half-full, others are so dense and crowded it's so hard to make sense of anything. My days! Unmarked pages of a book waiting to be deciphered highlighted, numbered and grouped together in chapters given to an artist to illustrate, so that you will be able to relate maybe even appreciate so much so that you might consider keeping, to read, to express an opinion, and then to declare that `Yep, I know those thoughts, I recognize those feelings' or maybe `it's not even worth it!' My days! Waiting, asking to be lived! they are still in the dark stapled together kept far away from Your days! -- Kevork K. Kalayjian, Jr. A graduate of the AGBU's Melkonian Educational Institute, Nicosia, Cyprus, holds a B.A. in Political Science and Economics from Fairleigh Dickinson University, Rutherford, NJ, a M. Ed. Counseling Psychology, from WilliamPaterson University, Wayne, NJ, and CPA requirements completed at Pace University, NYC. Kevork resides in NY with his wife Maral, and three sons Aramazt, Tro, and Ohanes. A descendant of survivors of the Genocide from the town of Kilis, in the Cilician region of Armenia, an accountant by profession, he likes to paint and write. His next project is to collect the names of 100 volunteer Armenian-American families who would like to resettle in Armenia and jump-start a new way of work and life there.
