This Sunday’s reflections with a universal plea appear here thanks to a post published at Mix&MatchMeme – one I would not have known about, had it not been to its reblogging (thank you, dear Paulette) at The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

Oh! Here I am. Thanks. 🙂
Welcome to my site, mixedupmeme! Thank you for your universally inclusive, poignant and utmost moving poem.
I like your wallpaper. The houses with the blue balconies and beautiful flowers look so inviting.
I don’t know why some bloggers choose dark black colors. It makes them so hard to read.
What does hulya mean?
Thank you. I have chosen the wallpaper for exactly the appeal you are stressing. I suspect my Mediterrenean background has everything to do with it, the brightness of the sun united with the deep clear blue of the sea. I agree with you regarding the dark or black colors in some wallpapers: the reading becomes quite difficult.
Thank you also for your interest in the meaning of my name. Hülya, in Turkish means a few different nuances of the same state of being: dream, daydream, illusion, delusion. But I have been told otherwise by Persian and Arabic scholars. If my memory serves me correctly (as the incident happened about two decades ago at a very chaotic post-conference setting), the Persian gentleman translated it as “ladylike” and the Arab gentleman as “rare gem”. Back then, I thought (still think so today), I could not lose either way. Right?
Your wallpaper is lovely. (I usually read your posts on my phone…imagine my delight with your stunning photo’s!) I also like what “Hulya” means…in all the translations.
Thank you, Kathy, thank you very much. Also for your thought on my name’s meanings. And, of course, I am happy to know the posts are colorful to “delight”.
