Mungkin nggak banyak yang bisa kukatakan tentang perjalanan itu. Atau mungkin malah terlalu banyak, sehingga kata-kata saja nggak akan pernah bisa memberikan makna yang serupa. Tetapi setidaknya, selalu ada jejak-jejak yang tertinggal. Seperti koral dan pasir putih di Monkey Island, pada penghujung pelayaran kita menelusuri Lan Ha Bay pagi itu.

Kenyataannya, memang nggak mungkin kita bisa meraup semua dalam satu genggaman tangan. Lagipula, apa gunanya semua–jika sedikit yang tertinggal dalam genggaman itu sudah cukup banyak meninggalkan kenangan?

Jadi, mari kita sisakan koral dan pasir putih itu untuk mereka yang juga hendak menikmatinya. Mereka yang menempuh perjalanan setelah kita. Dan aku memang nggak memerlukan sebanyak-banyaknya hingga terlalu. Karena sedikit tentangmu sudah cukup menerbitkan matahari di timur langitku.

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.
