Listening to PJ in Ankara

That was what I was doing during university years and onward in Ankara. I remember so vividly how I would feel free and out of this world as the swifts flying over my head while I was dancing to say Corduroy on the balcony, Our apartment was on top floor and Ankara has wild number of these screaming birds in spring. Their latin name is Apus apus. Apus mean `no feet` in Latin They have nearly no feet really and they mate and sleep on air. So their scream to me always a bit like making fun of us who still couldn`t let go to be totally free...

While I was listening to some videos (thanks a lot to all post!) I remembered myself in Ankara again (remembering Ankara more after all the bombings) and wrote these draft lines. Now I should go out and get some fresh air

Living is no laughing matter: you must live with great seriousness like a squirrel for example - I mean without looking for something beyond and above living, I mean living must be your whole occupation.
