Timeless
Historical
D.T. Iverson This explores the concept of karma. It involves two souls moving on the river of time. They represent the male and female side of the same coin and fate will inevitably bring them together. Some would call that love. Others might call it predestination. One way or the other, the human condition always dictates the outcome. Perhaps you've had the same experience. This presents two instances of many meetings. I hope you enjoy my little story - DT
