Photo of the day: Our land and future site of our school. For now we are growing lots of yummy food. Look at that corn and rice!
Lovely. A little piece of Heaven. Shangrila. A self-sufficient Shangrila to boot.
You have serious green thumbs over there!! Yum!! Don't let the cows get to it first! ;-)
Beautiful!!!! Im so happy your little ones will be nurtured in both body and mind, through food and education on that lovely land :)
Daniel Varoujan - ANDASTAN
At the Eastern part of the earthLet there be peace…Let sweat, not blood, flowIn the broad vein of the furrow,And at the toll of each hamlet’s bellLet there rise hymns of exaltation.
At the Western part of the earthLet there be fecundity …Let each star sparkle with dew,And each husk be cast in goldAnd as the sheep graze on the hillsLet bud and blossom bloom.
At the Northern part of the earthLet there be abundance …In the golden sea of the wheat fieldLet the scythe swim incessantlyAnd as gates of granaries open wideJubilation let there be.
At the Southern part of the earthLet all things bear fruit…Let the honey thrive in the beehiveAnd may the wine run over the cupsAnd when brides bake the blessed breadLet the sound of song rise and spread.
Daniel Varoujan 1914
