"Have you ever looked at a map of our country, Necdet?' Green Headscarf says. ‘It's a map of the human mind. We're split by water over two continents, Europe and Anatolia.

Potential can flow across the cleft. It's the cleft that makes consciousness possible." ~ Ian McDonald

"Fake it may be, lies and deceptions, but this is the world in which we find ourselves, and here we must make our little lives." ~ Ian McDonald
