    Merhabalar,

    Ben CHP Bakırköy ilçesi Gençlik Kolu Yöneticisi ve aynı zamanda Bakırköy Belediye Başkanımız Sn. Ateş Ünal Erzen’in fotoğrafçısıyım. Partiyi ilgilendiren fakat partiden bağımsız bir proje ile ilgili size danışmak istediğim bazı konular var. Eğer bana mail adresinizi yollayabilirseniz sizi daha ayrıntılı bir şekilde bilgilendirmek isterim.

    Şimdiden teşekkürler..

    Mert SARAÇ

    Selam Kader Hanim ,
    Sizleri takip ediyorum ve calışmalarınızda mükemmel ama gelin görünki kendi ülkesinde dahi muhalifetligi basarı ile yapamayan bir partiye mensupsunuz.
    Her güzelliğin muhakkak bir kusuru vardır düşüncesi ile sizlere çalısmalarınızda basarılarınızın daim olmasını dilerim.

    Selam ve Sevgilerimle,

    dear kader sevinc,

    i hardly ever write to people i don’t know, but i am an english-born academic teaching at kent state university in ohio, and a poet too. i’ll be in brussels from december 28, and i wonder if you can tell me if there will be any poetry readings from then until january 3.

    by the way, i worked in uludag university in bursa, and then at ege university in izmir before coming to america via yale. my memories of turkey are very happy ones. i note that you were at akdeniz university: isn’t that the one in cyprus?

    very best, and i hope you don’t mind my writing to you out of the blue, like this. do by all means look me up on google if you wish.

    (dr) roger craik
