Temel Ozdemir


Temel Halis'i ziyarete geldi. Az degil 10 yil kadar soforuydu. Bu sure icinde bazen benim de katildigim bircok seyahatlerimiz oldu. Onlari yasarken Halis'in kizmalari, daha sonra gulerek anmamiza sebep olurdu. Gercek bir karadedenizli olan Temel bizimle evlat gibi yakinlasmisti. Iste bu yuzden simdiki durumla karsilasmasina uzun zaman cesaret edemedim. Fakat gelmesi cok iyi oldu.
Halis'in yanaklarini opup "tombis babacigim, hersey eskisi gibi olacak" deyisini gormeliydiniz.

Arkadasi Oktay Ozaydin'la eylulde Konya Kultur Merkezi acilisini Halis'in fotograf sergisiyle yapmaya karar verdik. Simdi fotograflarini digital ortama tasitiyorum. Arkasi gelir.

Bugun oglen Galatasaray'dan baslayan 'gozaltindaki gazetecilere ozgurluk' yuruyusune katildim. Biraz icim rahat etti boylece.


Temel came to see Halis. Not insignificant, he was Halis' driver for 10 years. Within these years, we took many trips together. Halis' occasional anger at Temel during those trips used to lead to later laughing about those incidents. Temel who is a real Karadeniz-folk was close to us like a son. This is why I was not willing to let him face the current situation for a while. But it was so good for him to come and visit. You should have seen the way he kissed Halis' cheeks and said "fatty daddy, everything will be just like before."

Halis' friend Oktay Ozaydin and I decided to have an exhibition of Halis' photographs at the opening of the Konya Cultural Center in September. Now I'm having the images be transferred into digital. The rest will come.

Today at lunch time in Galatasaray, I participated in the protest to free the journalists under arrest. This made me feel slightly better.
