Clean Ship



Clean Ship

Ease your burden

All tossed overboard

A clean ship is sailing

An entire world reborn

A free mind is breathing

On it nothing forms

A clean ship is sailing

Into the diamond morning

Part 11 Hello Everybody, Daniel here for Sound of Hope Radio, . I hope you are ready for another week of Animal Farm English!Yesterday, I played a concert in Bratislava, the capital city of the neighboring country to us, Slovakia.

It is a sad situation, and I am happy to be able to play music and participate in events of this nature.  Anyway, when we finished last week, Squealer was just about to explain why pigs should get the milk and apples.Animal Farm Continued  (more…)

Part 10 Hello Class! Daniel here, with Sound of Hope radio, ready to do another episode of Animal Farm English.  I hope you are all well. I had a good day today , I think mostly becaue I started off with a good hour meditation.
