The seventh symbol is the Yin Yang symbol LOCATED on the very top of the mirror. I love the philosophy behind this symbol(. IT) states that opposing forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, giving rise to each other in turn.
The ninth symbol is the hookah which represents my love OF smoking. I love everything about smoking cigarettes and tobacco in general: the cloud of smoke that I puff, the lighter that I use to light a cigarette or charcoal, the way I hold the hookah pipe or the cigarette, and (delete even) the smell of smoke. The hookah CONTINUES (delete even) beyond these simple things (IN) that it’s the thing that takes me back home to my Arabic roots and the collective life. (what do you mean by "collective life?" Explain.)
The last symbol is the laptop which represents today’s tragedy. It’s the tool (WITH WHICH) I spend most of my time (delete with). It’s ironic how(,) because of technology, a lot of us today (HAVE) lost (TACTILE INTERACTION) with other people because of some means of technology; we say hello online, we play online, we talk online, and we smile and cry, not with friends and family, but in front of plastic screens that omit light waves. The laptop became a symbol for loneliness.
Interesting concepts, and a nice job conveying them!
