we are singing together.
my child, my first born, my little one who is growing so fast I can hardly keep up with her ever expanding vocabulary, my little bundle of energy and enthusiasm is now asking for the Armenian folk songs that I sing by name. She knows to ask for Arev, Arev or Gakavig, or Aghchig Aghchig (Hayastani Aghchigner…). Ah, I am amazed at this. I have been singing to both children since they were born… we sing all the time, and now, I am utterly delighted to see this child asking for songs by name.
Oh, what joy! My desire always has been to help keep the tradition of passing down these Armenian folk songs alive, to see the songs become a part of the heart and soul of the next generation … and to see this happening before my very eyes is pure bliss. We dance together, sing together, hold hands and celebrate the beauty of these songs.
I love this.
