Pulang ya pulang saja.
Tak usah repot-repot membawa buah tangan
yang hanya akan membuat tanganku gemetar dan mataku basah.
Pulanglah dengan girang
adalah menulis ulang sajak yang rumpang.
– Joko Pinurbo, Surat Pulang –
Almost a year, we backed home to this country. Instead of taking opportunity for staying in Copenhagen, mr.A choose to bring us back to this country.
We knew, the first step in this country would lead us to different life. The life we already imagined. New life, new adaptation. Trying to not scare, even though it scared us. But then, if I didn’t pass this year with having new great friend, little reunion to catch, traveling to neighbor city, enjoying the morning traffic, savoring the culinary I never made before, or I can full my vitamin D need after passed four winters, and a bit of culture shock, maybe I never loved the idea of back home.
And after all, we have chance, to stay or leave, find another place to live. Stay for a while to find another direction to go and get ready for another adventure. And I believe home is where the heart is.
