  1. A beautiful calligraphy for a word so sublime, that of life.
    I like the etymology which is so tied to the land.
    A pleasure to visit.

  7. So simple and yet so full of unseen potential, just like the earth nurturing the grass to be!
    The wisdom of our ancestors is a precious legacy to remember and rediscover. What a better etymology for "life" than this?...
    Thank you for sharing!
