1913-14 yıllarına dayanan bir aşk öyküsü… İmkansız bir aşk.

Görev icabı Sofya'ya yeni taşınmış bir Türk Subayı pek arkadaşı yok müzikli bir çay bahçesinde oturuyor etrafı tanımaya çalışıyor bir yandan memleketi için diplomatik görevlerinin gerektiği davetlere açılışlara akşam yemeklerine katılıyor.

1914 yılının şubat ayında yine böyle bir davette onunla tanıştı. Adı Dimitrina'ydı. Kısaca, Miti diyorlardı. Çok güzeldi. Güzel olduğu kadar iyi eğitimli, İsviçre'de müzik eğitimi görmüş, üç lisan biliyordu. Katıldığı davetlerde herkesin odak noktası olurdu bu özellikleriyle. Türk’ün de dikkatini çekti. Bizimkinin de  kızdan aşağı kalır yanı yoktu sık sık katıldığı toplantılarda ilgi odağı tartışmaların merkezi olurdu.

O gece Strauss'un “Güzel Mavi Tuna” valsi çalıyordu. Bizimki hiç tereddüt etmedi, salonu ortadan ikiye kılıçla böler gibi yürüdü, yanına gitti, elini uzattı, “bana bu dansı lütfeder misiniz dedi?” Tüm salonun gözleri üstlerine çevrilmişti. Kıskanç bakışlar eşliğinde piste çıktılar. Herkes onlara bakarak fısır fısır onların hakkında konuşuyorlardı. Onlar ise hiç konuşmuyor gülümseyen gözlerle  birbirlerine bakarak sabaha kadar dans ettiler. İlk görüşte aşk derler ya. O gece bizimki ve genç kız mıknatısın iki ucu gibi birbirlerinin cazibesine kapıldılar.

Daha sonrasında buluşmaya başladılar Borisova parkında dolaşıyorlar, buz pateni yapıyorlar, tiyatroya gidiyorlardı birlikte. Başta dedik ya imkansız aşk.. Önce dedikodular başladı, sonra tatsızlıklar… Çünkü Miti’nin babası General Kovaçeva Bulgar Çarı’nın has adamlarındandı, savaş kahramanı, savunma bakanlığı da yapmıştı. Böyle bir adamın kızı bir Türk ile olacak iş değildi. Ama bizimkinin umrunda  bile değildi Askeri Kulüp’te tertiplenen baloda denk getirdi, inadına, Çar’ın önünde dans etti Miti’yle… Ele güne meydan okudu. Hemen ardından da, evlenelim dedi. Miti düşünmedi bile, evet dedi. İki gönül bir olmuştu ama General kızı apar topar bir başkasıyla bir mühendisle nişanladı. Bizim ki nişanı duydu, yıkıldı.. Görev süresi bitmişti, o öfkeyle topladı bavulları, İstanbula geri döndü. Halbuki Miti bir başkasıyla evlenmeyi reddetmiş, fırlatıp atmıştı parmağına zorla takılan yüzüğü…

Ama Türk Subayın bundan haberi yoktu.

Belki de hayatı boyunca yaptığı “TEK” hataydı..

Kızı alıp, gitmeliydi…
Yapamadı.

Türk subay’ın hayatına daha sonra çok kadın girdi ama unutamadı
Dimitrinayı…


Hatta, seneler sonra, Ankara’da Bulgar Kooperatif Tiyatrosu’nun oyuncularıyla sohbet ederken, “gençliğimi bıraktım Sofya’da” dedi…
Bir kız sevdim ama, bana vermediler...”

Dimitrinada vefatından evvel başında bekleyen kız kardeşi Olga’ya mırıldandı. “Biliyor musun” dedi, “rüyamda onu gördüm, galiba nihayet Mustafa Kemal’e kavuşuyorum…

Kapattı gözlerini.
Nihayet kavuşmuşlardı.

İşte Bulgaria Pastanesi'nde tek başına oturup etrafı tanımaya çalışan, Mustafa Kemal'in bir gün yine pastanede otururken, Bizaat kendisinin tercüme ettiği Şair Léon Louis van Montenaken ait olan şiir

La vie est bréve
Un peu de réve
Un peu d'amour
Et puis bon jour

La vie est vaine
Un peu de haine
Un peu d'espoir
Et puis bon soir


Şiir: Léon Louis van Montenaken

Hayat boştur
Biraz kin
Biraz ümit
Ve sonra allahaısmarladık 

Hayat kısadır
Biraz hayal
Biraz aşk
Ve sonra allahaısmarladık


Tercüme: Mustafa Kemal Atatürk

Birkaç gündür Bulgar kaynakları da dahil konuyla ilgili bilgi topluyordum umarım sizinde hoşunuza gitmiştir. Bu arada Fikret Kızılok’un parçasıyla dinlediğiniz zaman bizzat o yıllara tanıklık etmişçesine bir his yaşıyorsunuz. Onuda aşağıya bırakıyorum :)
İmla ve yazım hatam olduysa affola…

Eight reasons to visit Colorado

Colorado is the home of the Rocky Mountains, the gateway to the West, filled with pioneer history, real life cowboys, hip towns, hot springs and some of the best hiking, biking, camping and climbing you’re ever likely to find – all only one direct flight away, with British Airways flying to Denver seven times per week.

Winter here is rightly famous, but the adventure lasts all year. In summer, wildflowers carpet the mountain slopes; in autumn, golden hues race through the forests. There are 300 days of sunshine a year, more 14ers (mountain summits over 14,000-feet) than any other state and a festival scene that doesn’t quit - from the spectacular Snowmass Hot Air Balloon Festival where hundreds of balloons fill the sky with colour, to the slightly mad Iron Horse Bicycle Classic (fancy chasing a steam train up a mountain anyone?), Colorado’s got you covered.


Powder dreams

European ski resorts might get all the airtime, but for true winter junkies a Rocky Mountain trip is a must. Powder here is drier, lighter and perfect for carving, plus the runs are empty and enormous. The amount of choice is superb too, from the wide-open bowls of Vail and Breckenridge to the fast lines of Aspen and Snowmass, as well as more than a dozen other world-class winter resorts within a short drive of each other.


Elevated adventure

Colorado is home to 12 national parks and monuments, offering everything from backpacking and horseback riding to rafting, rock climbing and even, in Great Sand Dunes National Park, sand boarding among North America’s highest dunes. Most ski resorts stay open year-round, switching from pistes to downhill mountain biking trails and keeping the lifts running for high-elevation hiking and easy-to-reach panoramic views. The town of Grand Junction makes an excellent adventure base-camp, with some of the best outdoor activities in the state right in its back yard.


Some like it hot

Combining the spectacular scenery of the Rockies with five of the hippest hot spring towns in the country, the 720-mile Historic Hot Springs Loop is the best way to soak up Colorado’s healing waters. With 30 natural thermal pools open year-round, highlights include the largest mineral hot springs pool in the world at Glenwood Springs, the soothing natural vapour caves of Ouray and the bubbling delights of Steamboat.


National Parks

Rocky Mountain National Park is legendary: a 415-square-mile wilderness of jagged peaks and high alpine lakes home to coyote, black bear and moose. The fun mountain town of Estes Park, a great base from which to explore it, is just 1.5 hours from Denver. There are lesser known national parks too such as Black Canyon of the Gunnison, a spectacular 2,000-foot gorge that rivals the Grand Canyon but draws a fraction of the crowds, and the cliff-dwellings of Mesa Verde, one of the best preserved examples of Native American culture in the country.


Red Rocks Amphitheatre

If you’re after something a little less strenuous, try Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre – by day it’s a free city park just 30 minutes west of Denver with hiking trials and giant rock formations, by night, an outdoor music venue that has hosted everyone from The Beatles to local jazz, rock and bluegrass artists.


The Wild West

From ghost towns and vintage trains to working cowboy ranches and the largest rodeo in the world, Denver’s annual National Western Stock Show and Rodeo (as well as the first: the Deer Trail Rodeo which started in 1869) – the Wild West is alive and kicking in Colorado. 

Saddle up or join a cattle drive, and you’ll feel the spirit of that old frontier still; footprints of dinosaurs embedded in stone, petroglyphs carved into cliffs, rivers where you can pan for gold. 

Want to look the part? Head to Rockmount Ranch Wear in downtown Denver, where Western icon, Jack A. Weil, invented the first cowboy shirt with poppers instead of buttons and popularised Western wear into popular culture.


Hop Heaven

With more craft breweries per capita than any other state, Colorado is heaven for hop heads. Denver’s Great American Beer Festival is the largest craft beer event in the country while the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is set in a spectacular valley. But, it’s the little-known gems that really catch the eye: The Grimm Brothers, serving fable-inspired brews in Loveland, and the mountain views from Avery’s enormous outdoor patio in Boulder, are two local favourites. 

Get the true lowdown on a self-guided tour along the Denver Beer Trail and sample everything from stouts to lagers.


Sports Mad

Denver is Bronco’s country. When Colorado’s American Football team plays, the whole city dresses in orange to support. Catch games live at the Blake Street Tavern in the heart of downtown. But with seven premier sports teams in all, don’t stop there. On a warm summer night, hot dog in one hand, cold beer in the other, there’s no better place to be than Coors Field, home of The Rockies baseball team.


On the Rails

The steam-powered Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway, built in 1882, cuts spectacularly through the canyons and remote mountains of the San Juan National Forest – a journey taken by Colorado’s first pioneers more than a century ago.  While vintage train lovers will adore Pikes Peak Cog Railway, near Colorado Springs. The highest cog railway on the planet, it climbs to the 14,114-foot summit of Pike’s Peak, the view from here inspired the song America the Beautiful

you know what? i dont give a fucking damn how you perceive individual armys but when yall come for the whole lot of us AND bts as if we’re responsible for their behaviour then lmfao fuck you tbh

do you wanna know why armys are so sensitive?? its bc yall dont give us a break. we cant stan bts without yall breathing down our necks and making some of us feel guilty. and for what? for not stanning YOUR favs?? for not hyping up YOUR favs as if its OUR job???

when plagiarism accusations and hateful hashtag trends etc in a media where the ppl we stan can fucking see it even when they havent done shit, yall still think we’re just being sensitive?? when yall have accused them of being ab*sers, r*pists, plagiarisers, went for their mental illness, went for their eating disorders, went for their poverty etc etc and yall still think we can let that slide???

when another idol fucks up yet yall use our favs as a scapegoat??? yall just show that yall dont give a fucking damn abt the issue and only speak up on it to say “my favs are better than yours”

so when armys want to hype bts up bc we love them and want to support them and are proud of their success despite the odds being against them, its suddenly bad??? we’re being disrespectful??? when literally everyone else does the same for their favs???

idg how yall still think we arent allowed to be mad lmao
