LEGEND

KAREN TELLS ME THERE ARE MANY STORIES IN ARMENIAN
TRADITION ABOUT A MAN CALLED NASAHADEHAJA. HE
WAS SUPPOSEDLY A GREAT PHILOSOPHER WHOM EVERYONE
LISTENED TO. ONE DAY NASAHADEHAJA WAS SITTING
UNDER A TREE CRYING AND A WOMAN CAME UP AND SAID,
"NASAHADEHAJA, WHY ARE YOU CRYING?" HE ANSWERED THAT HE
WAS WORRIED THAT WHAT IF HE HAD A SON WHO CLIMBED
UP THE TREE, FELL DOWN, AND DIED. KAREN LAUGHED AT
THAT POINT, THOUGH I REALLY DIDN'T SEE THE HUMOR IN
THE STORY. SHE SAID THE MORAL WAS NOT TO WASTE YOUR
LIFE WORRYING ABOUT WHAT COULD (UNDERLINED) HAPPEN.
