Sinar matahari dan selimut yang ditarik-tarik. Salak anjing. Lompatan-lompatan kecil. Kibasan ekor. Cepat. Begitu bersemangat melihat saya akhirnya membuka mata. Pagi hari. Rambut yang awut-awutan. Saya bahkan belum mandi. Atau sikat gigi. Tapi dia sudah cukup senang. Menandak-nandak bersemangat. Kemudian melesat mengambil boneka beruangnya. Ditaruh di atas kaki saya. Lalu ia menandak-nandak lagi. Mengantisipasi saat ketika saya memutuskan meraih bonekanya itu. Melemparkannya jauh-jauh. Dan ia akan berlari sekencang-kencangnya, kuku-kukunya membuat suara ketak-ketik di atas lantai. Lalu ia datang lagi. Boneka beruang di mulut kecilnya. Diletakkan di dekat kaki saya. Lompatan-lompatan kecil dan salak itu lagi…

Seandainya manusia bisa sejujur itu ketika hatinya bilang: “I need you. I want you. Keep me company.”

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.
