“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly, “one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” Hans Christian Andersen, The Complete Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales
Summary of one month silence: While running in the vicious circle of daily routine, I was suddenly stopped. And jumped from breathless office mode to the endless blue of Aegean Sea. Without alarm, traffic jam, e-mails, computer, social media talks, duties, phone calls; during ten days I just lived. To re-adapt my soul to the rhyme of nature, like birds, trees or other creatures, I simply lived. Woke up with sunrise, took pleasure of looking milky way, spends hours inside the blue and look for the growing of love in my hearth. After ten days of meditation in Assos, spent another ten days with my parents for remembering childish way of life. Talking about old days, laughing stupid things, spoiling, taking pleasure of mother cooks; to cure my soul in the eternity of love. Last ten days passed in Istanbul, same life with different soul. Hoping to preserve healthiness of my soul as long possible. Like Kahlil Gibran’s said “Darkness may hide the trees and the flowers from the eyes but it cannot hide love from the soul.”
Photo was taken in SFMOMA [www.sfmoma.org] in a sunny day of April. After spending two hours by appreciating the imagination of artists, giving a coffee break in the roof of museum was the final point in pleasure. I wish to have a cup of blue-bottle coffee now [www.bluebottlecoffee.com].
