Letter #7

24 July 1999


“It was dark,
and the night was crying with me.
Then, sunlight touched my face,
like a lover’s loving hand,
and my tears became happiness…
Smiles blossomed where they fell,
and hope, rooted deep down once more.
My eyes witnessed a world of feast as if for the first time!
I heard the enchanting melody of the nature
and a prayer sent to heavens.
All creatures were spell-bound in love,
alas, not a human being in sight!”


My Friend,

My mind and all my feelings seem paralysed recently and I want to blame it on the weather –it would have been more worrying without an excuse!

‘Words don’t come easy’, once more… I feel tired of so many things… So, maybe it is as well that I will be taking my summer leave at the end of this week (I will be away for 3 or 4 weeks ‘hopefully’ relaxing somewhere by the sea.) So it seems we will be ‘cut-off’ for a while.

I will get in touch with you the moment I am back in Ankara. Meanwhile please discover and keep the peace within you and please don’t lose faith!

Love always,
