The Girls

Kaya is angry. Why? Did her belly dancing class get canceled? Did she get overlooked AGAIN for the leading role in a new Bollywood film? Did her orchid supplier decide to specialize in heliconia and torch ginger instead? Or maybe she’s frightened and saddened to realize that she’s getting older and might not ever get that prince she was born and bred to believe was waiting for her. Perhaps she realizes she has to work harder and more steadfastly than ever before to achieve her goals and she is tired, so very tired. But Kaya is as smart as she is tough and she is determined to move forward despite her fears, anger and self recrimination. She knows the past is only a lesson and not a life sentence. She knows “this too shall pass”. She knows chocolate helps.
