A Soapy Story: Teman Seperjalanan (Companion)


The picture above is Finna Kurniawati, the violinist player which Rendy and I had seen last week. Her recital could cure my thirst of art, especially after I took the recent job. My favorite composition is The Nightingale (by Deborah Henson-Conant), the last composition. Finna collaborated with Shienny Kurniawati in harp, and Glenn Bagus Zulkarnain in piano. It is very beautiful. And it's interesting for me, because I could listen harp in live version, for the first time. Lovely. 

Tonight, is the first night for Rendy staying in Jogja for his study. And for the first time I feel so worried and many indescribably feeling scattered in my mind. Both of us doesn't suit into long distance relationship and will try to be as close as we could. Some people says, it is about trust between the couple or love level between 'em, yada yada. It's all up to them to judge on those reason, but I have different opinion. I know and understand myself. I understand that I'm a melancholic person, always be in detail and also put my feelings and logics at the same time into my behavior and action. I don't need a man who will talk a lot with me when I'm down, I just need a hand to hold mine. I don't need a man who asked me why I cry, but I need him whose give me and let his handkerchief wet by my tears. I don't think texts, YM and Skype could do that. 

Many friends (and usually Rendy's student) make fun of us when he start writing a poetic sentence for me in Twitter, or when I brought a lunch for him, do some surprise visit in campus, and he came when I have my break, etc. They say that we are too romantic. =D I don't know why they said "too" in their sentence. Isn't it great? Isn't it brighten your day? Come on, don't be hypocrite. Who doesn't love a surprise breakfast in the morning? Or a paragraph of supporting poem in a middle of your hectic tasks? These little things made my day, and I hope his too. 

Every single day is actually the same, 24 hours, day and night. What makes difference is HOW you passed the day. This is how I want to spend my life, this is the way that won't bring grief at my old age. Life with no regret, fulfilled with love: parfait. 

When I enjoyed this world, then I could bring my best too. As @ndorokakung said, "If someone brings out the best in you, you're with the right person." That's why I choose him as the companion of my life journey.  Bismillahirrohmanirrohim.
