Birthday, a Reminder
Minutes to Dusk. Yogyakarta. 2008
I turned 24 recently. It's not something too special and of course I never did celebrate it. Well, I don't take it for granted but for me birthday is more like a reminder instead of a milestone.
I am really grateful for the last twelve months I have experienced good, exciting, spontaneous and adventurous moments. From skipping my graduation day, climbing a volcano, hitchike till swimming in an open sea. Crazy moments during a journey, with mother nature, with friends.
I don't have a favourite year, I never picked one, and never compare between those years. I am just happy enough that so far I have experienced every year of my life differently.
I do sometimes look back, remembering moments that have passed. And for me birthday is a reminder to look forward again, not too long looking at the same page, to yet again make new adventures.
And to experience another year differently...
