Photos from the Startup Showcase 😍🤟 this was my first business/startup event ever, and I kinda killed it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #secondplace It ended up being a pivotal part in the journey of realizing how accessible this world is. A lil lady walking into the office of the head of the business incubator, asking if she could independently study the upper level startups program with no previous experience. We have the ability to create the life we want. Please remember that.
İnsan, yaşadığı kadar iz bırakır, iz bıraktığı kadar unutulmaz...
Yakından da tanıdığım akrabalık bağlarımızın da bulunduğu Murat abinin (@kocak_gold_mall_of_istanbul) isteği üzere kendisine hediye edilmek üzere bir portresini çizip hayatını konu edinen bir kesitle sunmalım dedik.... Ve Cafer Akça beyin hayat hikayesini taktirle dinleyerek not aldım, enstantanelerimi seçtim arasından ve bir sinema filmi edasıyla film şeridine yerleştirdik sahneleri....
Hayat döngüsünü temsil eden helezonumuza, hayat yolunun ve geçilen zamanın değerini temsilen altınlar serptik yolumuza...
Soluk bir mavi ile başlayan anılar giderek baskın bir renkle resmedildi, çünkü eskiler solgun, yeniler ise taze dururdu hafızalarda....
Dedim ya taktirle diledim diye, çünkü maddi anlamda sıfır bir konumdan yükselmişti Cafer bey, çocukluğunu çobanlıkla geçirirken İstanbula yolu düşmüş, çıkarak olarak başladığı kuyumculuk işinde ardı ardına kuyumcu dükkanları açacak kadar ilerlemişti... peki ya nasıl? Düğününde takılan 4 adet bileziği sermaye yaparak atmıştı ticaretteki ilk adımını... ve devamı geldi...
Maddi kazançlarından daha çok kazandığı saygı ve sevgi sayesinde dernek başkanlıkları yapmıştı... Şimdi ise kurduğu geniş ailesiyle sevgi ve huzur içinde hayatına devam ediyor....
Sahi, başarı sizce de böyle bişey değil mi?

It’s been incredible to observe my quote on quote “social media” relationship these past four months. Social, meaning humans connecting through interactions and media being entertainment or a modality of thought said socialization.
I have not been as present on the web of “connection”, commenting, posting, liking and interacting. This is impart due to living on a island, a jungle with poor wifi connection and an overwhelming desire to connect with humans through presence. I’ve observed my desire to stay in touch, to stay relevant, to not be forgotten and it’s caused me to pick up my iPhone and reengage on multiple occasions. My innate need to feel connected has me squandering through photos and scrolling feeds. Yet I’m unsatisfied again and again. It’s simply not enough and in fact often times straight up disappointing. Humans want to see skin, nudity, pain, upset, distrust, unrest, anything to stir our par-amounting curiosity, something to make our current state manageable; possibly even justified.
I noticed when I wasn’t on social media I was invested in a deeper state of now. I was investing all of me into the beings currently by my side, in front of me. When I would post a photo of a volcano and expose my soul through my written art, I would maybe receive 100 likes. If I post a video of my clothless body in practice however, 1500 humans would watch. Somehow this seems unjust, unfair and frustrating. I am reminded however, that i am the one responsible for my energy leakage. I am in control of how humans affect me and what type of interaction or love connection I receive and exercise moment to moment.
I’m writing this to express myself freely, openly and transparently. To check in with all of you who may choose to read this. I’m grateful for this platform, for a place to share my feelings and my work. Writing comes to me in a form of channeling, I often don’t remember how I write, I simply begin, and then it’s over. So for this place, for the beings who read and follow, I thank you. CONTINUED 👇🏼
