Kedai Kopi

Kulangkahkan lagi kaki ku ke tempat yang sama
Kedai kopi di sudut kota
Tidak ada yang berubah
selain pegawai kedai kopi yang bertambah
kuhempaskan tubuhku di tempat duduk yang sama
kenangan lama
aku mengeluarkan buku kecil yang selalu ku bawa kemana pun
menulis kan hal-hal yang ada di pikiranku
menggambar sesuka hatiku
sekarang pukul setengah lima sore
langit diatas berwarna oranye
sebuah lagu melantun merdu
lucu ya, bagaimana bisa musik membawa ku terbang ke dimensi lain
dimensi yang tidak ada di masa sekarang
masa lalu
masa depan
semua masih abstrak

aku memesan secangkir kopi yang sama seperti dua tahun lalu
kedai kopi ini selalu menjadi tempat favoritku
tempatku menuangkan semua ide yang ada dalam kepalaku
tempatku bercerita
suatu cara untuk terbang ke dimensi lain juga

After The Fall dari Norah Jones pun sudah diulang berkali-kali
Buku kecilku sudah hampir kehabisan kertas
Secangkir kopi yang kupesan tadi, sudah habis kutegak
Kedai kopi di sudut kota ini selalu menjadi tempat favoritku

Tempat yang mengingatkanku ketika hujan di awal desember saat itu.

her.

have you watched Spike Jonze's Her yet? I've watched it before, but today I went to the theatre to watch it again. you know how much I like watching movies even if I had no one to go with, so yeah I went there alone.
well, although I have watched it before, but Her brought me some tears, actually. I don't know why did I cry during the movie, was it because the words or maybe I'm just being too emotional because of the period.
speaking about Her, I'm gonna put it into my favorite movie list right now. I love the story, how Theodore loves Samantha who is actually an OS. I love the soundtrack. I do love it. how the music represents every single scene. last but not least, the film is beautiful. I mean, I love how Jonze pays attention to details in it. the tone, the angle, the expression, the places, everything.
Her reminds me about something. Lost In Translation. yes, somehow I feel like Jonze's film is an answer for Sofia Coppola's Lost In Translation.
Lost In Translation.







many people said that John in Coppola's film is for her ex-husband. and it shows how the character of Charlotte feels about her marriage life until finally she meets Bob. I watched Lost In Translation many years ago, after watching it, I was like omg it was such a sad sad sad story. it shows that we, human being, cannot stand alone. neverwe always need someone else in order to live. have a company to share stories, get things done with, and build dreams together.
meanwhile, after watching Her twice, it was also trying to say the same thing just like in Coppola's film. we always looking for someone to talk to, unfortunately, when we cannot find someone to share stories, we run into technologies. we live with super high technology. how terrible if we would have a relationship with our own operating system rather than a human being.
in Jonze's film, Theodore has just divorced from his wife, Catherine, and seems like he still loves her.
well, in my opinion, the character of Catherine refers to Sofia Coppola. this two films are connected.
after the film ends, I thought about another opinion. why don't these two directors get back together and make a collaboration? something like a comedy-romance film? it would be awesome, I guess.


Her.

Summer Heart

I'm going back to Jogja tomorrow. so yeah, I'm kinda having a post-holiday syndrome.
I'm gonna post some pics that I took back when I was on vacation last December. it was my first solo trip and absolutely fun. I was just thinking that maybe I'm gonna do another solo trips next time.

I spent 7 days in there. although it was raining cats and dogs for almost 4 days but I still had a good time in the last 3 days. suddenly the sun came out and it felt like summer. I'm glad that I could make it.

 *Day 1*

 *Day 2*


*Day 3; I was instagram-ing*

 *Day 4; this photo was taken by my new friend*

 *Day 5: through the window; breakfast time*

 *Day 6*
*Day 7: Motel Mexicola*

*beach in the last day; Hoppípolla was on repeat*


 *going back home*


Travel has taught me many things about life. I remember a quotation from Anaïs Nin — 'We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls. and yes, it's definitely true.
I've met some new friends this past weeks. it's really strange that I couldn't believe that it was really happening. those my new friends were strangers--I mean, I don't even know them before. One day, I went to a coffee shop alone and bumped into the same stranger. he was wearing Warpaint tees and I was reading Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple and he came to me, said that he just finished reading that book. I gave him a look, "ugh-really?" and yeah we ended up at the same table. it was like in the movie, wasn't it? I know my story sounds cheesy, but I remember something. a few months ago when my friend told me that my life will be going like in the movie. maybe because I'm often watching movies or reading books. yea, but I hope my life is not going to be those cheap drama movies in television.
Well, you may be careful when talk to strangers but if you know that they are kind enough, who knows if next time s/he could be your friends. it's worth to try, really.

I had such a really nice holiday. it feels like it's been a long time I've never felt.....happy. 
I found a peace on earth. also in my self. you know that feelings, when everything is alright yet you don't have any plan what to do with your life in the next time but instead of making plan, you just go ahead and do whatever you like. hanging out with your buddies which is make you grateful that you are alive. travel to new places to appreciate the mother earth that has been the biggest inspiration. wake up then make breakfast every morning, dance to some good songs at night, and repeat all of those things all over again. I'm on the right track, for now.
I know this is just the beginning. but I do hope that was also a good beginning. new chapter of life? I'm soooo ready!
so, I'll see you when I see you

P.S: I made some stuffs on 8tracks--ways to kill boredom.

Love,
Fay
