A smell, a taste, a colour, a fruit. It is remarkable how these things can elicit so many memories, and with a single wave of emotion, instantly transport you back into the past, to a simpler time. This is the story behind my quince jam, because it simply means much more than jam to me. My grandmother, who I have always been close to and continue to grow closer to, despite the increasing distances between us, makes it. Most kids have an acquired taste, and so did I, but as an adult I can enjoy quince jam and appreciate the journey into the past.
A couple of years ago I was watching a cooking show where one of the contestants was talking about how her grandmother had instilled the love of cooking in her and shared all her treasured secrets. Soon after, I was overwhelmed with emotions. Having lived a life across the globe in different countries also meant having to let go of many simple things. Many small things with great value; time, connections, and relationships. I was made aware of somethings that I could never have with my grandmother but have always wanted. I was made aware of all the lost opportunities. .
Saturday morning, “This is very nostalgic” my father tells me as he tastes my quince jam. And in all honesty, all I felt was genuine happiness that I had instilled and elicited these shared feelings with my father. .
Don’t overlook the simple things in life. They do bring you joy. And if you live in the same country as your grandparent, visit them, it is an overlooked privilege. .
And if you survived my caption, thank you for reading.

#Galata tower was built by Genoese while they were expanding near Byzantine. It was the replacement of the Great Tower, Megalos Pyrgos.
As much as the tower faced with some drama like the fires almost destroyed it, it also witnessed some great moments like the first intercontinental aviator, Hazerfan Ahmet Celebi, flew from Europe to Asia, Galata Tower to Uskudar, with artificial wings. (Movie suggestion: Istanbul Beneath my Wings)
I find the idea of having a bird in a cage very sad, therefore they shouldn’t be kept as pets. But is having fish in a fish tank the equivalent? Are fish the birds of the sea? Random thought Wednesday brought you by me. This photo has nothing to do with fish or birds or cages or tanks. Thank you.
