no other way

"I love you without knowing how or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so i love you because i know no other way."

sail away

"I am not afraid of storms for i am learning how to sail my ship." - Louisa May Alcott

Listening to Nina Simone, eating home made dolma (better shot next time Ozge'cim), a few friends gathered around the living room table, drinking self made red wine (yummy!), dishing away, laughing .. times of change during hot summers nights, reading away good books: The Cider House Rules, The God of Small Things, Status Anxiety, Baudolino .. feeling good and much much lighter "for i am learning how to sail my ship".
