ara verdim/ after a long break

cok ara verdim, galiba blog yasagini bahane ederek.
Bu aralar cok calisiyorum ve atolye sergisine hazirlanirken bircok eski resmi de gozden geciriyorum, sonuctan mutluyum.
Halis, ugrasirsan tepki veriyor, bu iletisimden de memnun olmak lazim. Gecenlerde Dr. Ari Boyaciyan cook kucuk bir ilerleme gordugunu, yakinda tekrar eeg cekecegini soyledi. Ne diyeyim, az veren candan , hic yoktan iyidir. Simdi gundemde Halis'in 30-35 yil once cektigi ve ozenle sakladigi negatif fotograflari bastirma ve digital ortama tasima projesi var. Aslinda o kadar cok is var ki, bana bakan, bir kismi can sıkıcı, bir kismi benim daha once bilmedigim, ilgilenmedigim ama simdi ugrasmak zorunda oldugum isler.
Dun Yapi Endustri Merkezinin kitabevindeydim, cok guzel kitaplar var. Benim buldugum kucuk mucevher, zaten hayrani oldugum arkeolog Muhibbe Darga'nin "Kazi Baskaninin Karavanasi' adli yemek kitabi. Bazilarini uygulayip misafirlere ikram edecegim. Muhibbe Darga'nin Arkeolojinin Delikanlisi adli anilarini da heyecanla okumustum. Ben bir kitabi cok seversem , 3 tane aliyorum. Birini kendim okur, okurken cok bahsettigimden Halis de hemen siraya girerdi. Diger birini Asli'ya, nasil olsa vakti olmaz ama , verirdim. Otekisi Defne'ye postalanirdi. Hala da bazen yapiyorum.

I took a long break from writing on the blog, perhaps using the blogger ban in Turkey as an excuse. I am working a lot these days. As I'm preparing for a studio exhibition, I am reviewing a lot of old works. I am happy with the result.

Halis responds if you try and we should be pleased with this. The other day, Dr Ari Boyaciyan told that there was a tiny bit of improvement and that he is thinking about ordering another EEG. Better than nothing.

At the moment, the new project is developing and digitizing negatives of images Halis took 30-35 years ago and had carefully stored. Actually there are so many things I have to deal with , some of it tedious, some of it stuff I didn't previously know or care about but now have to take care.

Yesterday I was at the Building Industry Center bookstore. They have many good books. A great find was a cookbook called "The Excavation Director's Pot" by archeologist Muhibbe Darga whom I am a huge fan. I am going to try some of the dishes and serve guests. I had read Muhibbe Darga's other book, Archeology's Badboy with much excitement. If I really lie a book, I buy 3 copies. I would read one and because I talked about it so much while reading, Halis would often get in line to read after me. I would give the other copy to Asli though she often did not have time to read. And the third would be mailed to Defne. I still sometimes do it.
