Don’t Touch!

Kids don’t wear masques. No complex reactions. You see pure emotions, there. As it is.

(His trembling lovely voice)

In time, we learn to “put up with” our “weakness”es. What you see is anger, what’s present there is heartbreak and frustration. Especially for men.

What lies in the eyes…

Her: Draw a picture of me
Him: Why?
Her: I want to see what you see

I don’t know other languages or cultures, in Turkish, the analogy for heart in some cases is a glass vase. To depict once it’s broken/smashed, almost impossible to mend, never to be restored the former shape.

Indeed it’s never the same, is it? One feels holes, cracks inside, never fills again. You acknowledge them inside and learn to live with them.

Like a baby who could not relate the words with the feelings and notions… This is why I’m restless at times.

Feelings and thoughts pile up and want to come out but I can’t provide them the right words to born into this world…

I believe the best photos are taken spontaneously. Because it shoots us without the guards, masks we use when we pose. It captures the real person.

The best, the most beautiful moments, looks of us can only be seen by the beloved ones, and photographed with the urge to make them immortal.

Thus if you don’t have good photos, probably you have never been really loved.

The Patient

Several years ago the Journal of the American Medical Association published an article by Dr. Paul Ruskin on the Stages of Aging. In the article, Dr. Ruskin described a case study he had presented to his students when teaching a class in medical school. He described the case study patient under his care like this:

“The patient neither speaks nor comprehends the spoken word. Sometimes she babbles incoherently for hours on end. She is disoriented about person, place, and time. She does, however respond to her name. I have worked with her for the past six months, but she still shows complete disregard for her physical appearance and makes no effort to assist her own care. She must be fed, bathed and clothed by others.

“Her food must be pureed. Her shirt is usually soiled from almost incessant drooling. She does not walk. Her sleep pattern is erratic. Often she wakes in the middle of the night and her screaming awakens others. Most of the time she is friendly and happy, but several times a day she gets quite agitated without apparent cause. Then she wails until someone comes to comfort her.”

After presenting the class with this challenging case, Dr. Ruskin then asked his students if any of them would like to volunteer to take care of this person. No one volunteered. Then Dr. Ruskin said, “I’m surprised that none of you offered to help, because actually she is my favorite patient. I get immense pleasure from taking care of her and I am learning so much from her. She has taught me a depth of gratitude I never knew before. She has taught me the spirit of unwavering trust. And she has taught me the power of unconditional love.” Then Dr. Ruskin said, “Let me show you her picture.” He pulled out the picture and passed it around. It was the photo of his six-month-old baby daughter.
