Beloved.... We Owned Small the Boat


Beloved ...

unspeakable sadness
to hear you will leave me
Was I able to sail up to the island?

look at this boat
alone and no more passengers

I was able to cover the storm and big waves
but I may not be able to if you are not there

tears is the soul of the wind
but he will not be able to give a lot of this vast ocean saltiness

if you are going nevertheless
then let me tether the boat these in a strong tree

Beloved ....
it was still the boats belong to us

Singkawang, 31 January 2013

Beloved ....
it was still the boats belong to us

The Ashtray Dragon

I have a pair of dragon ashtrays are always with me when I work in front of the laptop. Unfortunately a pair ashtray dragon now no longer exists. It broke into pieces. In fact it's probably the last ashtray made ​​in the traditional way of production 'Furnace Dragon'. Furnace Dragon was in my town, Singkawang, and the only one that still exists in the world.  In her home country, China, Furnace Dragon no longer exists.


Aku memiliki sepasang asbak naga yang selalu menemaniku ketika aku bekerja di depan laptop. Sayangnya sepasang asbak naga itu sekarang sudah tidak ada lagi. Sudah hancur berkeping-keping. Padahal itu mungkin asbak terakhir yang dibuat dengan cara tradisional hasil produksi 'Tungku Naga'. Tungku Naga itu ada di kotaku, Kota Singkawang, dan satu-satunya yang masih ada di dunia. Di negara asalnya, China, Tungku Naga sudah tidak ada lagi.

Ada matahari, hujan rintik-rintik dan langit maka terbentuklah pelangi... Apa rasa yang kita tangkap ketika kita melihat pelangi?

The Sense of the Soul Like the Simplicity of a Twilight


Photography if just taking pictures is dryness. Indeed, photography is poetry of nature is captured by the eye and we want to share that catches our eye, whatever its object .... So is the graphic design are combined catches our imagination in the sense of the soul. And with all that we share sense of the soul without limits, there is no barrier anymore. That is art that is very universal. It could be wrong, but at least consider this a reflection the soul that I wanted to share.
Cameras, lenses, image editing applications and so is just a tool. Anyone can use it if it has been learned. But do not think it can be learned. He is a spiritual experience that is different in each person. Guess that would give a different touch to the results of photography, design, paintings and other works of art. And we can enjoy it as a gift of life if we can share.

So, any artwork any form to be very precious and respectable. I think it does ...

Photography jika sekedar memotret gambar adalah "kering". Sejatinya, photography adalah puisi alam yang ditangkap oleh mata dan kita ingin berbagi pengalaman tangkapan mata kita itu, apapun objeknya.... Begitu juga dengan desain grafis adalah tangkapan imajinasi kita yang berpadu dalam rasa jiwa. Dan dengan itu semua kita berbagi rasa jiwa tanpa batas, tidak ada sekat lagi. Itulah seni yang sifatnya sangat universal. Ini bisa juga salah, tapi setidak-tidaknya anggaplah ini sebuah perenungan jiwa yang aku ingin berbagi.

Kamera, lensa, aplikasi pengedit gambar dan sebagainya hanyalah alat. Siapapun bisa menggunakannya jika sudah belajar. Tapi rasa tidak bisa dipelajari. Ia adalah pengalaman bathin yang pasti berbeda dalam setiap orang. Rasa itulah yang akan memberikan sentuhan yang berbeda terhadap hasil photography, desain, lukisan dan hasil karya seni lainnya. Dan kita dapat menikmatinya sebagai hadiah kehidupan jika kita bisa saling berbagi.

Jadi, setiap hasil karya seni apapun bentuknya menjadi sangat berharga dan patut dihargai. Aku kira begitulah...

Burning the Rain


We are often try to burn the rain .... 
Can you burn it cold? 
While rain is a deep longing .... 

Loneliness is a pile of crave souls .... 
Are we Alone? 
We so often try to burn the rain ...
Kita seringkali mencoba membakar hujan....
Mampukah dingin itu engkau bakar?
Sedangkan hujan adalah kerinduan yang dalam....

Kesendirian adalah tumpukan jiwa-jiwa yang merindu....
Sendirikah kita?
Kita seringkali mencoba membakar hujan...
