Not love for a woman or a man but a love for passion, conflict and those who believe in joint futures. A love that was late to be acquainted with. But is isn’t easy to find love anyhow…How many times can a person feel love in their heart that leads to joyful tremors? This story is from the pen of a passionate person from Adana, with love to Göztepe and people from the place I love more than anywhere…”
