suvenir

Havel dan Kafka,

Andy Budiman, teman sejak masa kuliah, menyodorkan buku itu. Tajuknya Kolom-kolom Kawin: Kado Untuk Fathia Syarif dan Hamid Basyaib. Mereka menikah awal April lalu. Antologi tersebut adalah suvenir untuk para tamu.

Lebih dari dua puluh tulisan, dirangkai nama-nama seperti Goenawan Mohamad, Nono Anwar Makarim, Bondan Winarno, Nirwan Dewanto, Ulil Abshar-Abdalla. Sejumlah karya “orang biasa” menghiasi pula. Begitu pula dengan Fathia dan Hamid yang menyerahkan goresan pena masing-masing. Rata-rata ringkas, cukup banyak yang bernas.

Berikut satu paragraf di sana:

“…tidak ada perkawinan yang tanpa ombak dan gejolak, karena variasi dan kakofoni di luar sana seringkali menggoda. Namun demikian, perkawinan adalah juga pentas jazz, di mana sang pasangan dengan keterampilan, wawasan, dan sadar-diri masing-masing, sanggup memainkan improvisasi tak terduga di atas komposisi yang terencana.”

(Di tengah Kakofoni, Nirwan Dewanto)

Hmm, aku mendadak kangen ibu kalian…

    i am osterdal, saya sedang belajar bahasa indonesia dan masih sangat kacau. i am studying in austria and started to read philips’ blog since i knew his sister, daisy, last year. (actually i don’t really know whether they are siblings or not, but they do look alike). saya suka tulisan-tulisan anda dan juga philips. and i notice your friendship with philips.

    it’s kindda funny story but i heard your name long time ago. i heard your name because one day me and daisy had a conversation on ‘mencintai dan memiliki’. and she mentioned that our conversation reminds her of philips’ story on one article written by yus –his friend– years ago when they were in university. reading philips’ blog just now, made me think that it might be you who wrote something about eric fromm years ago. was it you? if so, i want to read your writing about it as well. thank you in advance.

    salam kenal.

    hi osterdal,

    salam kenal juga. yes, philips and I are friends – since in the university (and i am proud of being a friend of a clever guy like him. …:p) i think, better for you to ask philips directly about those article…:)) as long as i remember, i never wrote specifically on fromm. maybe just quote his thought.

    terima kasih telah mengunjungi blog saya.
