Dunku gun/ Yesterday

Dun 3 yılın doldugu gundu. Sabah atolyede calısmaya dalmıstım. Sonra 2 gun aradan sonra hastaneye gittim, enfeksiyon tedavisi devam etmekle birlikte iyi gordugumu soylemeliyim. Yıldonumlerinin anlamı kalmadı bu durumlarda. Ben de unutmusum. Halbuki ilk yıl yazdigi oykuyu radyodan okutmustuk, gecen yıl birkac arkadas yanındaydık. Bu yıl da iyi bir haberi kulagına soyledim, bu da guzel.
Bana zor gelen 3 yil aradan sonra bazen birinin cıkıp "yahu nasıl oldu, anlatsana " demesi ve benim de anlatmaya baslamam. Bu durum kacınılmazsa da artık cevaplamayabilecegimi dusunuyorum.
Cocuklarla daha dogrusu genclerle yaptıgım resim calısmasında ilk ders mekan kavramını inceledik. Onlara Halisin cekmis oldugu cesıtli mımari fotograflarla kolaj yaptırıyorum ki boyle birsey onu cok mutlu ederdi.


Yesterday was the 3rd anniversary. I was deep into work at the studio in the morning. Then, after 2 days' lag, I went to the hospital. I have to say I thought he looked well even though the infection treatment was still on-going. Anniversaries are somewhat meaningless in these situations. I also forgot this year. First year we had one of his stories read live on the radio. Last year, I was with him with a couple of his friends. This year, I whispered a good news in his ear, which was also a nice thing.

What's difficult for me is when someone comes up after 3 years and asks "wow how did this happen?" and I start explaining. Although this is inevitable, I believe I may start not answering.

In the teenage art class I teach, we explored the concept of space in the first class. I am making them use Halis' architectural photographs for collage, which I know would have made Halis very happy.
