time-deaf

Some few people are born without any sense of time. As a consequence, their sense of place becomes heightened to excruciating degree. They lie in tall grass and are questioned by poets and painters from all over the world. These time-deaf are beseeched to describe the precise placement of trees in the spring, the shape of snow on the Alps, the angle of sun on a church, the position of rivers, the location of moss, the patterns of birds in a flock. Yet the time-deaf are unable to speak what they know. For speech needs a sequence f words, spoken in time.

ah einstein amca burda olsaydi. derdim ki, 'zaman-sagirlari' nasil anlatsin bildiklerini, anlatmak zaman ister. zaman ama hilelidir, yalandir, yalancidir. bir söz, digerinin arkasina dizilirken daha zaman degisir, anlatmak icin coktan cok gec olmustur... tam anlatacakken, anlam kacip kurtulmustur...
