Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




We’re invisible
The sandwich generation
Caught between caring
For young and old falling tears
Grateful in our exhaustion

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem Utabukuro #4 tears falling

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  1. Which one is easier to care for, the young or the old? As long as the love is there, caring for someone, regardless of age, is easy! 🙂

  2. I liked the issue being brought up. It can be a challenge handling younger family members while having to juggle time to take care of older memb r d. Of course, we do what we need to, but it does wear you out.

  3. Exactly. You are grateful to still have the older generation around but taking care of both generations while working full time is beyond exhausting. My husband and I are lucky enough to still have 3 out of 4 parents still alive but all are getting up there and their health is on the decline.


  4. Very clever! Loved it!
