Di sini, kita harus berhenti. Sedikit hati-hati. Menunggu waktu yang tepat untuk menyeberang. Ada sesuatu yang tengah kita tuju di depan. Mungkin sekarang segalanya nampak buram. Dan dari sini, cahaya di ujung sana mungkin tidak begitu kelihatan. Tetapi terkadang, kamu hanya harus percaya bahwa ada sesuatu yang indah di tempat yang akan kita datangi nanti. Aku tak bisa menjanjikan apa-apa. Aku pun tak tahu pasti apa yang akan menyambut kita di ujung jalan. Cuma satu hal yang pasti:

di sana, akan ada aku.

Jika itu cukup buatmu, pejamkan matamu, genggam tanganku, dan bersama, kita akan menyeberang meninggalkan masa lalu.

  1. hihihi bagus ciboooo!

    aku jadi teringat ketika aku ngambil foto ini. hampir tengah malam di orchard rd. aku sendiri jalan kaki dari shangri la yg lokasinya tak jauh dari situ. seakan hapal jalanan setempat, aku terus berjalan dan memotret. menikmati malam dan pendar-pendar kota yang sedikit sedang beristirahat.

If you made it this, far, please say 'hi'. It really means a lot to me! :)

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.
