an antique hotel across a monument. lotus pond. a dimly lit corridor. a short walk to kill time ended with a wall. a painting—had been noticing it even from far away. the yellow aura. the kiss. gustav klimt.

2.

an hour and an old restaurant later, at the city of apples. night was about to come. they named the ice cream ‘sparkling delight’. peach and a burning sparkle stick. it took some time, but the thing sizzled. mini fireworks. sparkled. burned.

3.

that’s how you remember it:

That particular kiss—the kind where the fireworks show is happening here; right here: sparkling, it fills the tiniest gap between our flaming lips.

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.

This year, I learned to accept the days when I don't feel motivated, tired, or a bit grumpy. I learned to allow myself to sit with this feeling instead of feeling guilty about it and forcing myself to be productive, socialize, or just get things done.

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.
