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.

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.

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.
