Peachy acoustic walls. The amplifier and the cheap drum stick. The strange smell of the studio’s carpet. An empty cassette case and a SONY Walkman. Rewind. Side One. Song number 4*. The less-favorite electric guitar; it felt cold in my trembling hands. You said, “Let’s give it a try,” and took the lead on a Fender. I read your fingers carefully as you played along: C G Am E7 F / G C Am G / F Fm C …

“Excellent. Now we’re ready to play,” you winked.

The melody. The drum. The bass. I strummed my guitar. You grabbed the microphone, sang aloud, and I fell for you.

Legs and Apples
Do it because itโ€™s fun. Because it brings you joy; because itโ€™s meaningful to you. Do it because it gives you simple tiny pleasures. Do it because it makes you smile.
The view from De Klok
I took another digital detox this weekendโ€”I limited myself to a 5-minute screen time on Saturday and Sunday to quickly check my business account. I closed my social media account for the rest of the days.

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 lifeโ€”one word at a time.
