I am going home. I am going to listen to music. I am going to have some massage. I am going to meditate. I am going out for meal. I am going to swim on Sunday with mentees. I am going to enjoy moments of quietness as darkness sets in at night. I am going to lie down and watch movies. . . .

Christmas is coming but do we feel it’s drawing nearer? For one thing, Western-influenced Christmas is not for me. I am not into it any longer. True, that rekindles memory of happy childhood, but now I am a much different person . . .

So this is a year-end. Time to put on the brake on work and all academic matters. Time to enjoy the other side of life, maybe at a cafe, may be just on the bed, may be at the swimming pool, or at the jogging track, or just on the couch listening endlessly to music . . .

Have a good weekend!

  1. iyah… dulu waktu saya masi kecil suasana natal itu terasa. Film2 tema natal, tayangan misa, tanyangan nyanian natal, kue kue natal, udara yang dingin, suasana yang khas. Makin lama makin g berkesan. Natal selama di machung ini aja (mulai natal 2007) g ada apa2 nya. paling cuma duduk diam di rumah buka laptop. sama kaya hari2 libur biasa. Seperti ada yang hilang gitu…

  2. Ya, betul, Sus, natal udah makin arifisial dan komersil sekarang. Lagu2 Barat itu tambah aneh lagi, krn mengingatkan pada salju. Pertama, di Indo nggak ada salju. Kedua, salju di jaman ini menjadi pembunuh gara2 global warming. Memang, Sus, ada yg hilang, tapi kalo saya sih, saya nggak mau kehilangan bayi Yesus itu. Hanya dia yang membuat Natal adalah Natal se Natal-natalnya…
