Sudah malam. Hampir pukul sembilan; padahal mereka telah duduk-duduk di sini sejak pukul setengah empat sore. Lelaki itu akan meneruskan perjalanan lagi untuk bertemu dengan kawan-kawannya, pukul sepuluh, di tempat lain. Ia mengajak si perempuan turut serta; tetapi perempuan itu menguap lebar.

Lelaki itu tertawa. Ya sudah, saya antar kamu pulang…

Paper

Keduanya berjalan bersisian menuju tempat parkir. Di dalam mobil si lelaki, mereka duduk bersebelahan. Ketika lelaki itu menyalakan tape, si perempuan mendengar sebuah lagu yang entah mengapa langsung merebut hatinya. Maka bertanyalah ia kepada si lelaki, Ini lagu apa, ya?

Night Walk-nya Belle&Sebastian, jawab lelaki itu sambil tersenyum. Kamu suka?

Perempuan itu mengangguk (sedikit terlalu bersemangat).

One of my favorite songs, kata lelaki itu. Kemudian ia berbisik ke telinga si perempuan, because it reminds me of us.

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.
