Hibernated, Prioritized


Writing and reading. Yes, I got kinda fed up with the bling-bling life¬† that I cannot cooped up with. The thrill was something, but the reward was nothing. I could have written more, done something else for any good deeds or causes. For a week of “reclining ’em all”, I have finished writing another non fiction book with so so so tiresome (but satisfactorily wholesome) of deep research. What I love about writing is that I could onnect the loose ends, connecting those dots into something VOILA! I thought so, too! Or, ach so, I did not expect that…

The thrill is not for me. It is for others’ sake. I could confirm and conform them with new data, outrageous thoughts. But now, I must get out and meet some old buddies. Recharging after hibernating for a not-going-out-no-makeup-nor-dressup week is something. Yes, I only have few trustworthy, my-life-at-stake-trusted friends, and I always look forward to meeting those valuable friends. I keep them for keeping my life on track. Priority friends, see you tonite!

Domo Arigato. Rp 10,000 entrance fee?


Katanya sih persahabatan Indonesia-Jepang, sayangnya masuk ke sana “tidak bersahabat”. Saya sesungguhnya datang ke sana dengan niat baik “persahabatan” itu tadi, tapi dasar saya merki (baca: pelit), saya urung masuk ke dalam pameran kerjasama Jepang-Indonesia ini karena harus membayar Rp 10 ribu. Saya pikir untuk mengetahui apa saja produk Jepang tak usah payah, tinggal google saja, bukan? Lagipula masih banyak museum seribu rupiah sekali masuk yang lebih baik saya kunjungi bersama anak-anak. Buat rakyat seperti saya, nilai uang seperti itu berarti benar.

Jika sore ini saya urung ke sana bersama keluarga, ada sedikit pelipur lara dalam perjalanan ke tempat parkir. Saya bisa lambai-lambai tangan saat papasan dengan RI 2 — lengkap tujuh mobil dan 4 motor pengawal — menuju pameran yang berlokasi di Kemayoran, Jakarta ini. Saya bangga bisa berada dua meter di sebelah mobil iringan wapres tanpa diusir.

Saya punya lagu enak… buat menemani tidur malam ini.

The Price of Friendship


What is friendship? What is mental illness? They go hand in hand.

The stigma associated with mental illness is a big barrier to recovery. If we want to be a truly healthy society, we need to break down the stigma and treat mental illness like any other healthcare condition. It starts with you.

People with mental illness can recover or manage their conditions and go on to lead happy, healthy, productive lives. They contribute to society and make the world a better place. … One of the most important factors in recovery is the understanding and acceptance of friends.¬† (www.whatadifference.samhsa.gov)

This writing has nothing to do with otonomi daerah or public policy or such… but trust is the keyword of productivity among us.
