RE Books Arts Yayınevi
It was a peace for my heart and my brain that I was able to reflect what was told by Rengigül Hanım, my mother’s paternal grandmother, who had lived through wars, exiles and earthquakes, as well as my other ancestors, to our generation and our following generations by means of my language, my heart and my drawings. They became the master tailoring cutters of life patiently by listening to tales and watching movies, and handed down us the true life experiences like a tale. My maternal grandmother impressed by Rengigül Hanım would call April as “Avril”.
I have a secret skill acquired by beatifying the Distinguished Professor Doctor Ekrem Akurgal who used to be my teacher; I am endowed by God with the skill of drawing. Each drawing is “Flowers of Love”. I wish flowers of love would be painted in all colors. Do you ask why? My friend who made her own car “Cinderella Bridal Car" at our wedding had been scolded at the first grade of primary school because she had painted the sun in blue, so she got offended and stopped painting. I got sad to hear her telling about it with a sorrow reflecting from her eyes.
If you want to be original, paint as you wish, and grow “Flowers of Love” with love. Whenever you find a free space, write down articles, stories and poems, and compose music. Make a mark, like your fingerprints... Whatever you feel like doing. Then, let’s open exhibitions and publish new books hand in hand for “Love and Peace”, and let them be in all the world languages.
Prince Avril and Princess Sea-Lily, who spoke with the language of love and lived in the Prince Islands, had promised to maintain love and peace by joining hands in all the islands in the world. Prince Avril was "The Human Prince". He knew that all women, children and all the “spirits” in the world were a “Gift of God”. This is the fictionalized tale of a love story based in the Prince Islands (Prinkipos) in Istanbul. Our world is also comprised of several continents, large and small islands. As the daughter of Prof. Dr. Faik Yaltırık who was a lecturer of botany:
I HOPE TO COMPOSE “TRIUMPH OF DIGNITY” HAND IN HAND IN A WORLD FULL OF “LOVE AND PEACE”.
