Let me ask something if you'd kindly permit. That's about your essay
on Turkish forum. How did-you develop such an intimacy with time?

.......................................................................June 3, 2012
It is a half year since Nermin asked this question. I don't remember ever being able to wrap myself around the question. i was a bit flummoxed.

I don't know how the subject of time became a part of me so that the words formed.

Honestly, I don't know how it happens.

When I went back to the Turkish forum some time ago, I could not find my essay. I did a Spanish version, too. The English title of the piece is "Time Breezes".

As you know, I have no proficiency with language beyond English. I like using the online translator software. Working with it can be a bit labor-intensive, but it unlocks secret worlds.

I also remember reading 'Time Breezes' on the radio back in 2009.
There are three long pages and more than two hundred posts on Turkish
forum, so :-)

You don't have to, Carmela, analyzing is intellectualizing
and often takes people away from poetic domein :)

Oh, thank you, Nermin! You and Ercan and the Turkish forum have been great gifts to me, and I feel rich beyond measure.
