see through me

A bit of my thoughts about life in general and things that keep it worth living...


Shorty 005...

Feeling across...

He stares again into the empty space in front of him.

No, it isn't empty. He just erases everything to make a place, a shrine, a throne to a face that he's holding dear in his head.

Her face.

The unreacheable. The Grail.

No, the place isn't empty. People are still sitting, talking, buzzing. It's crowded. Yet, to him, they are all just a faded illusion that melt into a blurred background as she comes crashing once again into his mind.

It's a strange sensation. He finally meets someone who could possibly mean the whole world. For some reasons, she is as distant as the running horizon. The proverbial treasure on the tip of rainbows.

She's everything he ever wishes for. The sheer beauty, the cunning mind and most of all, the glittering eyes that shine like a thousand suns.

No, his heart isn't empty. It's full of unexplainable feeling. Love? Too soon. Care? Certainly.

It's harder than he thought.

Of course.

Life always has one of those twisted unexpected crossroads. One where he's standing right now.

And he chooses to stay still.

A distant beep.

A light on his cellular.

A short message.

Sorry, I can't come...

He smiles.

What a beautiful crossroad.

Somewhere in Setiabudi, you know who you are...


bonne année...

It was a quite different new year's eve for me.

First, my beloved and I didn't do the traditional countdown as we were watching a short film in Anton Ismael's studio. It wasn't until nearly 20 minutes later that we realized that the year has already changed.

Secondly, as we joined our dear friends at Tornado Coffee, Kemang, we were bombed by series of questions.

Yes, it was the moment of questions and answers. Everyone had to make a question about anything and we were supposed to answer to each one of them.

It's kinda like those questions you see in Friendster's bulletin... but live.

This is grossomodo the list of questions, and my answers.

Put in mind that some of us -well, all of us- were quite drunk.

Without further ado.

Mea Culpa.
