Aşk

November 27, 2010

“So I feel connected to every language in a different way” Elif Şafak‘s words from the compelling 20-minute video clip, on fiction and not only, made me remember my admiration for the unique Turkish word “aşk” [love] which is only used for “love” of that one special person one loves and not for god, parents or family. Languages, thoughts, words, feelings … fiction, reality – “Aşk” is already on my reading list.
