2013 yazılarından alıntılar çünkü geçmişte kayboldum bugün.


Seni sevmemeye nasıl başladığımı anlatmayı deneyebilirim, ama sevmediğime inandırmayı başaramam.
.

.
Telefonun tuşuna her bastığımda makine odasının ortasındaki basmamam gereken dev kırmızı tuşa basmışım gibi ama o kadar kırmızı ve
kocaman ki çok heyecanlıyım her şeyi havaya uçurmak için,
gibi.

Hayatı boyunca o kadar seratonini bi arada görmemiş insanların hayatı ne kadar anladığını sorgulayabiliriz ama saçma olur çünkü
hiçbiri on yedi yaşlarını boğaza karşı sigara içerek geçirmemişlerdir.
o yüzden sıfatlara hükmetme gücünü alabilir kendimize.
yani onların iyi'siyle bizim iyi'miz kıyaslanamaz  çünkü en iyi'ler farklı, tabi bu kötü için de öyle ve şu an iyi bir kısımda değiliz.

Yeni güne uyandığında, gerçekten yeniymiş gibi davranmayı deneyebilirsin. Sanki hiçbir şey olmamış, her şeyi unutmuş gibi.
Yeni güne eğer severek başlayabiliyorsam, kazanabilirim.
Gün, güneş doğunca mı başlar peki yoksa aylarca süren günler mi yaşıyoruz?
Zamana hükmedebiliriz. Zamana hükmedebilirsek eğer, yeni günün ne zaman başladığını seçebiliriz, eğer seçebilirsek de ne zaman yeniden başlayıp unuttuğumuz da bizim kontrolümüzde olur.
Yani bu yeni bir gün ve dün akşam saatlerinde başladı.
Biri bana senin için ölüyorum dedi, sonra diğeri gerçekten ölüyormuş o yüzden onun yanında olabilirim. En yakın arkadaşı da olabilirim, çünkü şu saatten sonra herkes her şeyi hak ediyormuş gibi.

"They were far from the unhealthy-looking models of today. Backstage, models would read literature while waiting for the show to begin, but today it’s been replaced by selfies. Taking your own picture by yourself or with others has become a way of life. But who am I to judge?"

"Once upon a time, models were far from household names in the United States. Today, they have millions of social media followers and fans of all ages. Not to mention, they are now synonymous with celebrities. They no longer quietly read while waiting backstage; they snap pictures with one another to post across various social media platforms, which receive thousands of views within seconds."

"Now all the magazines and websites all use the same pictures–bland, processed, edited images. For me, there’s no merit in it anymore, because it’s no longer photography, it’s informatics. Post-production has become more important than the shooting itself. Photography, photos-graphos in Greek, means ‘writing with light."


“It’s become too simple, too easy.”

on communication

      "One of history's few iron laws is that luxuries tend to become necessities and to spawn new obligations. Once people get used to a certain luxury, they take it for granted. Then they begin to count on it. Finally they reach a point where they can't live without it. Let's take another familiar example from our own time. Over the last few decades, we have invented countless time-saving devices that are supposed to make life more relaxed - washing machines, vacuum cleaners, dishwashers, telephones, mobile phones, computers, email. Previously it took a lot of work to write a letter, address and stamp an envelope, and take it to the mailbox. It took days or weeks, maybe even months, to get a reply. Nowadays I can dash off an email, send it halfway around the globe, and (if my address is online) receive a reply a minute later. I've saved all that trouble and time, but do I live a more relaxed life?
     Sadly not. Back in the snail-mail era, people usually only wrote letters when they had something important to relate. Rather than writing the first thing that came into their heads, they considered carefully what they wanted to say and how to phrase it. They expected to receive a similarly considerate answer. Most people wrote and received no more than a handful of letters a month and seldom felt compelled to reply immediately. Today I receive a dozen of emails each day, all from people who expect a prompt reply. We thought we were saving time; instead we revved up the treadmill of life to ten times its former speed and made our days more anxious and agitated."
