Görüşmediğimiz zamanlarda bu kitapları okudum. Bir de başlayıp da henüz bitirmediklerim var. Şeyh-i Ekber Mahmud Erol Kılıç'ın İbn Arabi'yi anlattığı doktora tezi. Doktora tezi olarak yazılmasından sebep, dili ve tarzı bir miktar akademik olsa da İbn Arabi ile tanışmak isteyenler için tavsiye ederim. Kızılbaşlar/Aleviler Aleviliği hem tarihsel hem dinsel açıdan ele alan oldukça güzel bir kitap. Bu kitapla birlikte bir kere daha anladım ki, bu konularda yabancıların yazdıkları kitapları daha çok seviyorum. Ali Şeriati'nin Dua'sı ise şu günlerde gerçekten kalbimi en çok titreten kitap oldu. Fütuhu'l Gayb oldukça stoik tarzda kısa makalelerden oluşuyor. Sacred Places ise dünyada kutsal kabul edilen mekanların bir derlemesi niteliğinde.


Yine biraz suluboya ile hemhal oldum. Hiçbir şey yapmasam, çizmesem bile elime almak, renkleri birbirine karıştırmak, suyun kağıt tarafından emilmesini izlemek çok rahatlatıcı. 


Nihayet Louis Vuitton mürekkeplerim geldi. Fiyatları yüksek, ayrıca internette doğru dürüst bir renk kartelası yok. Bu sebeple biraz el yordamı ile sipariş verdim. Fırsat buldukça blogda yayınlayacağım renklerini.

                       

Geçen hafta beş gün boyunca Bodrum'dan Antalya'ya uzanan bir seyahatteydim. Bu seyahatte bana Keskin Color Myra defterim, Lamy Safari Neon dolmakalemim, Pelikan Level 65 ve Uniball Signo Broad eşlik etti. 

Elbette yine ülkedeki olayları takip ederek uykusuz geceler geçirdim. İçinde bulunduğumuz durumdan endişe etmemek mümkün değil. En büyük dileğim insanların şer üzerine değil, hayır üzerine birleşmeleri. 

Sizin haftanız nasıl geçti?

Sevgiler,

Zeynep Kalemsever

I read these books while I was away. And of course there are also the ones which I start reading but not finished yet. 

Again, I messed with watercolor a bit. Even though I did not sketch anything, still it is relaxing to mix the colors, gazing while the paper absobs water.

Finally I had my Louis Vuitton inks. It is quite expensive and there is no proper color chart available online. Therefore it was a bit of a chance I picked up three colors. I will publish it in my earliest convenience.

I was out of town last week for a business trip from Bodrum to Antalya. On my way, I had my friends Keskin Color Myra Notebook, Lamy Safari Neon Fountain Pen, Pelikan Level 65, Uniball Signo Broad.

Of course I also spent restless nights while following the incidents occuring in Turkey. It is quite concerning and I pray for people to unite not upon violence and destruction but upon good faith and peace. 

How was your week?

Cheers,

Zeynep Penthusiast

  1. I actually stopped by a LV store inquiring whether any store in the US will carry the ink. The associate thought I was losing it, so I took it as not any time soon ;)
    The watercolor experiment looks wonderful! Incidentally, I was coloring with watercolor pencils earlier, and it did not look as stunning as yours.
    I have been reading nonstop for the last week and finished several Nordic detective novels. Now I am reading a French novel titled The Elegance of the Hedgehog. Very intriguing and philosophical.
    I am hoping the unrest throughout Turkey has subsided as I am leaving this note, and I sincerely wish that the government will extend the token of faith and peace.

    1. The thing is, this is a temporary department only launched in Paris St. Germain store for a year. I don't know, what will happen next year.

      Those are not watercolor pencils, they are so faded that I don't like them either. Try using a real watercolor set, they are great and they change the way you paint. I am using Windsor and Cadmon.

      The Elegance of the Hedgehog? Name sounds interesting. Is it also a detective novel?

    2. It is okay, I did not assume that the writing section of the LV will extend itself quickly. I am in no hurry to get them, but just curious!
      Interestingly, I do prefer watercolor pencils because I finally got a hang of them. To intensify the hue, dab a bit of color on wet surface, and diffuse it with waterbrush again if it is too strong. It has worked well for my crafting purpose, and hopefully one day I will get a hang of it for actual watercolor as well.
      The Elegance of the Hedgehog is a French novel with a philosophical flair. The author is definitely a Japanophile and she explains some principles of philosophy in such a lighthearted way, which makes the entire reading experience extra delightful.
