Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


“The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.”

Turkey

Orhan Pamuk, Nobel laureate and Turkey's most famous writer (and one of my absolute favorite writers) praised the protesters for defending the park, a popular historical landmark as well as one of the last green spots in the city.

"Seeing that they will not easily give up their memories gives me hope for the future," he wrote.

The protests in Turkey are much beyond defending a park. They are a cry for radical changes towards freedom. I truly, truly hope they will bring new light, and not too much hurt.

“I don't want to be a tree; I want to be its meaning.”

Nicoletta Ceccoli


Nicoletta Ceccoli is an Italian illustrator born in San Marino in 1973.
Her works are inspired by classical fairy tales and are characterized by surreal and unsettling atmospheres. Her female characters look melancholic and frozen in their apparent innocence and fragility. They are exquisitely delicate and beautiful.
Watching her pictures is not always a visual experience: they envelop you in their white, frosty, dreamlike silence.
