I seem to be posting every two or three weeks, less frequently than before. I apologize. As summer comes and some of my other commitments lessen, I hope to post more often.
Here are some topics I can write about. Would you let me know which you find most interesting?
1.I have been thinking about separation of church and state, and the fact that most Muslim countries have either government control of religion or religious control of government.
2. I was fortunate to spend almost a year teaching Iraqi Christian refugees in Turkey. Exceptionally devout, they had some surprising things to tell me.
3.I can provide a reading list about Turkey, recommending my favorite books on the topic. These range from discussions of current events to more lyrical accounts of Turkey’s distant past to a memoir by Turkish Nobel Prize winner, Orhan Pamuk.
4.I could give you my take on whether or not people should be afraid to visit Turkey. What and where are the dangers?
5. I could write about culture clashes I observed between Turks and foreigners.
So. . . please let me know what you think. I hope to hear from you!
