Do you ever just sit still and listen? Listen to the sounds of cars whizzing down the street, or birds chirping? Have you ever woken up at night and heard nothing at all, just the sound of a world sleeping?As a teen I feel like my life is going in all sorts of directions with no place to take a break. My mind seems to be constantly on alert waiting for the next sound to come. I never seem to be able to just sit and breathe, and not worry about an upcoming test or be trying to find places to volu...

Excellencies, Presidents, Leaders,When, in the early morning, in a mist of cloudy weather, you enter your office, sit down and start working, what do you hear, what do you smell? Human voices, the perfume of freshly made coffee, sun rays shining a light on your working table?After having worked long hours you return home and in your bedroom, in the silence of the night, you can sleep knowing that the following day you’ll get up again, in a mist of cloudy weather.Solving wars, finding impossible...

Being in your early 20s when you are a female Indonesian is hard for those of us who want to achieve our dreams. Even in this 21st century, stereotypes against women are still very much alive, even in the central region of our country, Jakarta. The majority of our society still sees a woman as someone who's created to be someone's life partner, and her core existence is to continue the life line of human-beings.Our country was once very conservative about women's freedom, let alone about getting...

Have you often, caught your mind aimlessly wandering away in the middle of a conversation? Do you ever feel the need to excuse yourself out of a social gathering for no apparent reason? More often than not, do you find yourself constantly being prodded with the question 'Why do you look so lost?' I can positively say that I've found myself grappling with the above situations for as long as I can remember. My friends often, tell me that I have an uncanny ability to tune out of conversations very...

It was an event for travelers,...

We are walking through the desert on the opposite sides of it.Everything seems still.The falcons are flying over our heads and are searching for each other - just like you and me.You came closer, you are almost next to me, but still too far for me to see you.Somewhere around me I feel your steps getting closer rapidly.Just so you didn't know that I waited for you all this time, I hid myself behind a sand mountain and curled myself up in the shadow.You stopped walking, just to hear where my foots...
