The Making of a Child Artist

Tags

In our previous article, we went from “Who Translates 300 Books?” to musician, artist, producer, author, and businessman with SaySaga Inspirational, Selim Yeniceri.

I interviewed Selim Yeniceri and asked, “Which title do you like the best, when referring to yourself?”

And he answered, without delay,

I prefer to describe myself as an ‘all-around art person.’

If you ask me if I like describing myself this way, I would say that I’ve never known anything else, as far back as I can remember.

Selim used to draw endless amounts of horse sketches at age three. He formulated the anatomy of a horse in geoemetric form and in any pose desired. Using rectangles and sticks, he then made the horses jump, run or stand. It was the first time that Selim remembers develping a life-long affinity to animals.

At age eight or nine, Selim immersed himself reading zoologogy encyclopedias speaking of animal life as his selected readings, as if they were a novel. He dreamed of writing his own 300-page novel, too.

The transition from being an artist to a writer came through the doorway of being a good story-teller.

Beginning at age eight, Selim wasn’t watching cartoons. He was an actor on children’s shows.

That wasn’t all.

When it wasn’t summertime holiday, Turkish Radio and Television, TRT was Selim’s venue (See building above).

To give you an idea of the role TRT played in Turkey, singer Zeki Muren was a classical Turkish music star, internationally beloved, who attended TRT for weekly radio shows.

In Turkey, all LIVE radio shows went out directly from TRT’s site, broadcast to the entire country.

Everyone who was anyone showed up here to sing or act. It was THE place to be.

Selim Yeniceri is likened to a  Turkish version child prodigy like American Mickey Roonie.

During the early-1980’s, TRT there were three radio stations:
  1. TRT – TV, radio, and theatre. This was the only TV station in the country. For a historic perspective, television was introduced to Turkey in the early 1970’s.
  2. “Police” FM – popular music. Amazingly, tt was financed by members of the police force.
  3. “FM” Radio – disco, pop, hard rock music. This was Selim’s favorite, of course.

With a school year schedule on the theatre stage six days/week for two years, Selim also was on radio.

Thus, on the seventh day of the week, Selim read radio scripts for children’s and adult radio theatre, upwards of 200 shows.

He remembers nonchalantly being handed his script for review, and the producer would walk away.

By the time he returned, Selim would have read the whole script!

Incredulously, producer Vedat Demirci would ask, “You read the whole thing?”

Selim was very honest, answering,

Not the page numbers.

Who Translates 300 books?

Who translated 300 books?

Selim Yeniceri.

Born in İstanbul, Selim Yeniceri has been a book translator in Turkey, with decades of professional work under his belt and about 300 books translated from English to Turkish.

A free-minded New Age and spiritual person, he is a single father, musician, artist and author.

Much more than just a ‘book translator,’ imagine how this feat extraordinaire could also “be bad”…. if you are also a musician, artist, and author.

For that is the truth of the matter. Under this understandably ‘superficial’ accomplishment (yes, it ends up being just the beginning) of being a ‘book translator’ lies a much more gifted person whose day has yet to come.

We are in the midst of Selim Yeniceri’s own life story even as I type these words.

Selim wrote a memoir, riddled with severe ups-and-downs as challenges to a potential musician’s career surface and resurface.

The thing is that he continues to look upward through life’s challenges.

So it’s a story that unfolds before your very eyes, and I think you will like to watch how it ends.

After all, everybody loves an underdog whose day is yet to come … I think you’ll be rooting for him this 2017.

Accompanying the book release is a distinguished prequel: his original music production.

Not ‘just’ a book translator or musician, Selim Yeniceri is also a music and video producer, music master, remixer, and studio professional.

I Don’t Know where the Train Tracks Lead

Tags

, , , , , , ,

About two days ago, I received unofficial word that Tate will end up keeping any and all money made from any book sales. Reportedly, they are not paying Amazon and other vendors for services. This is just the word. I have not confirmed it. Of course, I’m not going to call them. Reportedly, it is very difficult to have someone answer their phone.

I’m not going to get in a huff about this.
I’m going to remain composed and logical.

steamtrainsnowlowres

I’ll just keep smiling in a classy sort of way,
Plugging like a locomotive snow train sort of day.

~ Dr Margaret Aranda

Onward & Forward We Go!

I’ve been marketing my own books, together with a group of lovely Twitter friends who I respect and admire (so many to include, and I just can’t do it, but thank you to all!). And I know authors struggle, in general, anyway, and I promised to keep people informed, as I was informed. So that is what I am doing.

I was adjusting to this news until now,

and have not made any changes in what I am doing.

But probably within a couple of days,

I will stop Tweeting on my own books and instead,

I’ll ‘save’ Tweet collections as in a “Moment”

on each of my Twitter profiles.

Yes, I am sad about seeing my work get invisibly cut away from me in what seems to be an uncertain future. But … you know that I am a very positive person and I do hope that the future will be brighter. Somehow, someway, this has to all be a part of God’s plan for my life.belle

After all, when I think about it, I remember that my quarterly checks from Tate Publishing were, like,  $0.35.

Yes, it was less than the cost of a stamp. SO…

What can you do? Lots, actually, ranging from A – Z.

Personally, and for the moment, this is what I say:

“Oh, Well…” and I push on, toward the light.

As discussed in the original article on “What Happened to Tate Publishing?” I will keep you informed. My personal goal? To have my grandchildren hold my books in their hands. My plan? I am partnering to start a publishing company that will sell ebooks, for starters. Of course, I’ll keep you advised.

This is certainly a reason to turn something ‘bad’ into something ‘good.’
That’s what The Rebel Patient does.

She thrives on adversity and the sense of impending failure and doom.

She takes the negativity and turns it into positivity.

Her ‘friends’ relish the thought of seeing her fail.

She moves forward, each step of the way, striving.

Like herself, The Rebel Patient wants you to (you guessed it) …

Be the  Best Person You can Be,

Each Step of the Way!

~ Dr Margaret Aranda

traintrackstonowhere

I don’t know where the train tracks lead,

but I’m going to stay on them.

I Am The Storm Poem

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

“I am the storm” is a “frequently-used” poem.

About a year ago, I first happened across it on my Pinterest Board. Here it is:

ae8eeae4d3adc62e689b17e3df6824b2

When I read it
I almost immediately thought
that the essence
was forged from brimstone
in a firey place of untethered resolve.

~ Dr. Margaret Aranda

 

I loved it. It congealed with “The Rebel Patient” that I have become. And I know that it speaks to many people. I told my friend, Selim Yeniceri, about it. I said,

“This is you!”

 

More later. Just absorb the poem.

And see if you think a storm is brewing here.

Go be a storm.
