Thanks to my friend Alessandro who opened up a new subject matter for me: the relationship between typography and divinity

All tangible reality is a materialization of the divine meta-language. The sounds of the cosmos are the spoken aspect of this meta-language and the physical world is its written aspect. The only way to get to the meta-language from ordinary language is to break words down to letters and sounds and analyse them to see their meta-linguistic references. Meta-linguistic letters relate to ordinary letters in the same way archetypes have their relationships. In the science of letters there are a number of different techniques for doing this. The requisite organ for the meta-language is the heart. In order to find the inner meaning you therefore have to undertake a journey to the core of your own being.

Mayıs arşivimde yer alan Karşıyaka'lı Salı'nımlar, Beni Martılar Anlar yazımda "martıların çığlığında yaşadım denizin uyanışını" diye yazmıştım.Akşamın alacakaranlığında güzel olmalı kanatlarının altında bakabilmek hayata.
