Moppy, do you know that deep down in my heart your name is […]

Love Across The Border

I am away from home. I am far away from family. My closest family is Bob – a stray cat I adopted about five years ago when I was living in a rented room in Tangerang. Bob came to my landlady’s house every afternoon when I got home. I used to sit on one sofa […]

Orchids in Changi Airport (a few to enjoy)

KEMELEKATAN

KEMELEKATAN (obrolan ringan tentang Bob kucing) Beberapa orang merasa bahwa cintanya pada dunia tidak sebesar cintanya pada Tuhan. Mereka mengklaim diri bahwa mereka mengabdikan hidupnya untuk Tuhan. Saya meragukan diri saya dalam hal tersebut karena nyatanya memang tidak demikian yang saya alami. Saya masih belum menikah tapi saya punya kemelekatan yang tak kalah lekat dibanding […]

GELEMBUNG KERINDUAN

KERINDUAN Kerinduan adalah gelembung udara yang mengurungku, membangkitkan kesadaran tentang sebuah kehidupan yang membalut hati namun tak teraba-terasa oleh syaraf jariku. Jika gelembung itu pecah maka hadirlah aliran udara mengipasi jantung yang berkeringat berpacu mengejar namamu.
