The Archaeologist by Knarik O. Meneshian Allured once more to the breast of silent pageantries, his old, weary eyes become radiant and wide as he kneels before his icon of granite and chips away slivers of Time in quest of Man's How? When? and Why? Digging-- Reaching deep into the cool darkness, his fingers touch a spearhead. Digging more-- Reaching deeper, he brushes clean a dotted shard of pottery, a coin of King Hetum, and smiles. Again-- Bits of Yesterday are cradled in his palms. Knarik Meneshian was born in Austria, from an Armenian father and an Austrian mother. She's married and is a writer and a teacher. She has also taught ESL in the village of Jrashen (Spitak region), Armenia in 1991. Various of her works, - (poems, short stories, articles, reviews, - have been published in American and Armenian publications. She has authored "Reflections", a book of poems, and translated to "Musa Dagh - The Banishment of Zeitoun and Suedia's Revolt" by Rev. D. Antreassian, from Armenian to English.
