Jika demikian, biarkanlah. Hati yang sudah pecah pun bisa dikumpulkan kepingannya. Lalu kepingan-kepingan berwarna-warni itu bisa ditempelkan pada sebuah stoples kue yang tutupnya sudah hilang, kemudian dijadikan vas bunga—untuk meletakkan seikat bunga matahari. Bunga-bunga itu akan nampak lucu, membuat ruangan yang paling suram sekalipun akan terlihat sedikit unyu.

Maka, jika kita adalah kata-kata, jadikanlah kita segala yang menghadirkan hangat. Seperti semangkuk ketupat dan opor ayam di atas meja.

– hari ini, tepat seminggu setelah Idul Fitri –

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.
