Jam 9 pagi. Berlari pulang.
Ada sesuatu yang membuat saya sedikit terburu-buru.

Tangan kanan: satu pot lavender dan tanaman sirih-sirihan; tangan kiri: sebungkus soto mie dan berbagai macam gorengan. Ada sesuatu yang membuat saya sedikit tergesa meletakkan bungkusan-bungkusan tanpa dibereskan. Mengguyur telapak kaki yang panas dengan air dingin, kemudian berlari-lari ke kamar. Meraih telepon genggam–dan menyadari ada satu pesan singkat bertengger di layar:

Dengan bangga kuakui
diri ini sudah tidak
singel lagi. He he he
senangnya!*

Saya tertegun sejenak. Kemudian terbahak. That is so you 🙂
Selamat! Ternyata kamu duluan …

*a gift for Silent Soul’s 1st anniversary 🙂

Do you often find yourself feeling guilty about taking some time to rest? "We all need rest, not because it makes us more productive at our jobs, but because it makes us happier, healthier, more well-rounded people," wrote Homan.

While most of us think of the past as something that happens behind us and the future lies ahead of us, for the Aymara people, it's the other way around. The Aymara people see the past as something that lies ahead of us, and the future as something that lies behind us.

Hi. I'm HANNY
I am an Indonesian writer and an artist/illustrator 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.
