Summer's Here!

Okay, baiklah. Indonesia tidak punya summer. Kita punya musim kemarau atau musim kering. Tetap saja, aku senang sekali! Akhirnya hari-hari basah dan mendung berlalu. Selamat datang malam cerah berbintang! Selamat datang langit biru!

Di mana siangnya panas dan padat dengan riuh orang bekerja. Dan malamnya bagai tak berujung, berhamparkan gemerlap lampu kota dari jalanan dan gedung-gedung tinggi.

Selamat datang!

Understanding and Curing Limerence

(Excerpt from, nothing was written by me)The phases of limerence
Like other addictions, we see limerence originating from early life psychological wounding. We use it to fill a hole in our soul.  We  describe  limerence as the mother of all distractions and when working with clients in limerence we are  curious to uncover what is it the person avoiding dealing with?  So often there is deep unresolved emotional pain.

Sort of Mid Life Crisis

Let's call it a premature mid life crisis
A time in my thirties
When everything goes everywhere
Or in another term
Goes nowhereA time when things are pretty much "it"
All the excitement has wore down
Nothing big to anticipateMaybe it's too much to say
Everything's downhill from here
But it's probably trueNot that I'm not grateful
I'm just being realistic
Maybe I had too many adrenaline in the past
So life's now seems so dullHappiness and fun comes in very different sizes, boxes and colors
Maybe I'm just not ready yet
To get tiny pale yellow boxes every other day
When deep inside I'm still waiting for that big shiny rainbow boxLife can never be as fun and thrilling as it was beforeOr can it?
