Dreams The Black Sea

I was born in a Bulgarian city close to the Black Sea coast. Some of the most memorable times of my childhood are the summer times that the whole family used to spend in a small hut on the beach. And the highlight had always been the stories my grandpa used to tell us. He was a slightly disabled actor and had mesmerizing stories about the headless horses, the children, the sea…This intimacy with Black Sea must have been engraved in my soul so deep that even decades after we moved to Turkey, I keep on taking shelter on its coast. I am living in Istanbul, a mega-city of millions of estranged people. Fortunately, it is close to the Black Sea coast, which offers me a window to breath whenever I feel drowning. <More>
