I have so much to tell you; of Turkish streets and shops and food and the non-stop, flawless weather. Of the sea, my newly beloved sea. But it will all have to wait. Because today, this bitter and sweet today, I leave for home. Yet, I also leave home behind.
I leave the cats, I leave the boats, I leave my Gypsy King. But I take with me a handful of blue Turkish tiles, tumbled by the Marmara tide. And a heart so full it fills the sky.
