Realiti dan Fantasi

Kita sering dibatasi
Realiti dan fantasi
Saat cinta bersemi
Bersama berilusi

Di situlah kita
Mengenal ertinya budi
Kasih sayang insani
Dan peribadi

Pada detik yang ngeri
Yang tak pernah termimpi
Ku dibaluti sepi
Kenangan membara lagi
Meracuni hati yang keterlanjuran

Baru kini ku akui
Kau masih milik ku lagi
Dan terus bersemadi
Hingga akhir nanti

starry tales

It is rather comforting to think of our forebears watching over us, of God using the canvas sky to paint large the deeds of mortal heroes. It makes little Earth seem important in the universal scheme of things - more than a mere rock amid empty, howling space.

Though man-made lighting has tried to push night away to safe distance, though it has made the stars harder to see, you can still stand outdoors, in a hail of dizzying stars, and spot constellations exactly as your ancestors did. It is still possible to enjoy the stories those stars have generated.

But when you do go outside on a starry night, consider this: The light from some of the stars has traveled for so long to get here that the star itself has long since burned out, gone. What are you looking at, then? The memory of a star? Its ghost? Its story written in light?

you've got mail

Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable but small. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around?

I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So goodnight, dear void.

the great gatsby

"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."
