the squiggle of live

Reading is like thinking, like praying, like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people’s ideas, like listening to music, like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach.

—Roberto Bolano (2666)

Langit mendadak runduk kelabu. Disini kita tak sempat lagi bicara tentang sepi dan membenahi jejak mimpi selama ini. “Hidup tak perlu ditangisi”, katamu. Untuk memulai hidup ini dibutuhkan keberanian, namun tak usah berlebihan. Karena gerimis luruh pun menyimpan kemungkinan. Sungai tak angkuh tengadah dipermainkan musim, menjebak hidup kita dari gelombang tak terduga. “Hidup harus lebih dari sekedarnya”.

—Budi Laksmana (1959-1986) M-236-UI

A very short lesson in Psychology:

shyieesolove:

  • When a person laughs too much, even on stupid things, that person is sad deep inside
  • When a person sleeps a lot, that person is lonely
  • When a person talks less and if he talks fast, that person is keeping a secret
  • When a person can’t cry, that person is weak
  • When a person eats in an abnormal way, that person is in tension
  • When a person cries on little things, that person is softhearted
  • When someone asks about you although that someone is busy, he/she really loves you
