Cinta sendiri adalah sebait puisi yang terlalu panjang untuk dinikmati semalam suntuk dalam sebuah pementasan.

Betapa membosankan melihat cinta dari balik kotak kaca setebal 3 sentimeter dalam sebuah pameran.

Di sekitar saya, atas nama cinta, orang-orang berjalan dengan tangan-tangan terpaut. Menggenggam jari-jemari yang sesungguhnya tak akan pernah mereka miliki. Dan sesungguhnya tak akan pernah bisa mereka mengetahui rahasia-rahasia yang tersembunyi di sela-sela jari-jemari itu meskipun mereka telah menyentuhnya.

Saya bukan kritikus, kolektor, kurator, atau penikmat cinta yang terpajang dalam kotak.

It’s just so damn pathethic.

Beradadisini Love Letter to Self
I took up a personal journaling project this week: writing a love letter to myself before bed. I work on a thin A6-size handmade paper journal I got from a paper artist, Els. The journal is thin and small enough, so it doesn't overwhelm me. It feels like I am only going to work on a small project.

Standing up for yourself does not have to look aggressive. It does not have to feel like a fight. It's not always about convincing others or explaining yourself and your decisions with the hope that everyone else understands or accepts your choice.

Hi. I'm HANNY
I am an Indonesian writer/artist/illustrator and stationery web shop owner (Cafe Analog) based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I love facilitating writing/creative workshops and retreats, especially when they are tied to self-exploration and self-expression. In Indonesian, 'beradadisini' means being here. So, here I am, documenting life—one word at a time.
