the city of 07:40..

Sitting here in the apartment of my friend, the sun is about to rise and I'm still looking out, and thinking about the day we are about to start... 2792nd anniversary of the capital of my homeland, the capital of my nation...

The last few days were crazy, cranes everywhere hanging the "Tricolors" and the flags of Yerevan... organizers and workers preparing platforms for concerts on almost every square every street cross... tv ads are announcing about concerts, events, games, fun and joy... it a real feast...

I'm thinking why we have to wait for the anniversary to have a feast like this just because the mayor wants so, or wait for the independence day to have concerts and fun...

I think my nation needs to have feast more often .... I think we deserve to have feast without any reason... why not have a feast every other Sunday.. just for the fact that it's Sunday and we are still alive and seeing that day ...

Why not.. it won't harm anybody... or is that not possible because there is no "self PR"-ing involved...

Anyway I don't want to spoil the fun.. I'm happy for my city.. I know I won't but I wish many many of children with the same blood that I have in my veins could celebrate the anniversary of not only Yerevan.. but also Van, Ani, Kars, Ourfa.. and every other Armenian city that we don't have the chance to celebrate...

I don't won't to make this any longer specially that the sky is already turning blue and I still have to sleep because there's a lot of fun things to do all day long... good morning my city... and good night everybody...


And for this occasion I can't help my self not to remember and sing this great song...
Երեւան դարձած, իմ Էրեբունի...

  2. You're right, we need it, but we lost the habit of having fun long ago. Instead we have more and more merelots days to spend them on the sofa in front of the tv set watching trash. I guess we'd have more concerts, joy and fun if only we wanted. But we don't. We have what we deserve - that's it. I wish there were more people like you, Hagop. God bless you.

  3. Thank You "Anonymous" for the good comment,

    I partially agree with you about "we get what we deserve" thing ... but instead deserve I'd say we are getting this because we are letting them give it to us....

    It's also the same about the TV Trash thing... they say that's what the public demands ... I don't believe in that either.. The public "learns" what they get, so it's organized mass-idiotizing process... (now we're getting out of the main line) ...

    What I'm trying to say is that people should start to change and start to not demand , just start to LIVE in the way they should.. that way by time everything will start to change no matter what plans the string holders above have.
