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.

We tend to shape our memories of them based on the limited time we spend with them—and our memories of them, over time, will be replaced with one single word, one single interaction, or one single feeling.
Beradadisini Love Letter to Self
I took up a personal journaling project this week: writing a love letter to myself before bed. I work on a thin A6-size handmade paper journal I got from a paper artist, Els. The journal is thin and small enough, so it doesn't overwhelm me. It feels like I am only going to work on a small project.

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.

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 life—one word at a time.
