On a fine day..

These fine days have been my ruin.
On this kind of day I resigned
My job in ``Pious Foundations.''
On this kind of day I started to smoke
On this kind of day I fell in love
On this kind of day I forgot
To bring home bread and salt
On this kind of day I had a relapse
In my versifying disease.
These fine days have been my ruin.

Well, these are the words of the famous Turkish poet Orhan Veli Kanik, translated by Bernard Lewis (1982) Oh, how well he is describing my mood on a fine day..

It looks like snow and cold weather are slowly coming towards us, but when the weather reports announced the last fine days before the winter for this week, we immediately made a small program. Right now we are travelling on the Black Sea region. Who cares that I have tons of stuff to do at home, weather is good, we are happy and that's all it matters.. More photos are coming soon..
Wish you a great week...


  1. Siz ve dostunuz ne şirinsiniz ! :)

  2. Enjoy the beautiful weather while it lasts! Great photo of you and Hera!

  3. That is what matters. Soak it all up.

  4. You and Hera look like you are enjoying the sunshine. Winter is upon us and it may be cold, but as long as the sun shines, I can handle it. Savor these days so that you may look back on them and warm with the memories. Have a great week!
