Like the lotus flower that is born out of mud, we must honor the darkest parts of ourselves and the most painful of our life’s experiences, because they are what allows us to birth our more beautiful self.
P.S: Appreciate those who care and have been there for you in your hard time no matter what!!
When you enter the Fullerton CTA, there's a tile mural on the first landing leading up to the El platforms. "Doors Open Everywhere" was commissioned by the city of Chicago and created by my brother-in-law, Chicago artist Michael Dinges. We recently met up with Michael and were able to visit the mural where he spoke with a DePaul student who was interested in it. (First photo, l - r, Michael Dinges, Jim Dinges, DePaul student)
Desir anginmu sudah semakin menggebu menemani gelapnya cakrawalaku.
Hanya terdengar sayup rerumputan berirama yang ingin mengawali malamku.
Kembalilah, waktumu sudah berakhir, senja merah jambuku.
Sudahlah, datang saja sesukamu.
Aku hanya menunggumu, waktu dan tempat bersamamu.
