Ode to Autumn

Cappadocia. Is it real or magic?

My life is quite hectic these days and I have no time to write even though I’d like to share my stories and photos from so many places. The worries and thoughts are taking from both my creativity and productivity, but I am working on it while forcing myself to go further. While dealing with…
