Review: Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage

Lika-liku hidup dan persahabatan adalah tema buku ini secara garis besar. Jika dikerucutkan lagi, buku ini sebenarnya berbicara tentang kehilangan.

Tsukuru, tokoh utama dalam buku ini, telah kehilangan pertemanan yang (sangat) dekat dan berharga. Menyisakan ruang hampa di hatinya sampai merasa mau mati. Tidak ada hentinya berpikir dan kemudian menelusuri apa yang salah pada dirinya hingga dicampakan begitu saja oleh teman-teman terdekatnya.

Trees.

Mood:

Meadow. Forest. Trees. Green. I want all of them. I want to visit such a place. Sleeping, hiding, smelling the fresh air, only.

Or,

Picking some flowers–making a crown by it, playing with the animals there.

Seems much more relaxing than in a crowded-big-city, huh? 🙂

Btw, I know where you stand. Silent in the trees.

Why won’t you speak?

Someone to Stay

You were alone, left out in the cold
Clinging to the ruin of your broken home
Too lost and hurting to carry your load
We all need someone to hold

You’ve been fighting the memory, on your own
Nothing worsens; nothing grows
I know how it feels being by yourself in the rain
We all need someone to stay
We all need someone to stay

Hear you, falling and lonely, cry out:
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
At the end of the day you were helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?

You’ve drunk it down and you’ve spat it out
And nothing tastes like the things you had
So turn it off, why don’t you let them go?
We all need someone to stay
We all need someone to stay

Hear you, falling and lonely, cry out
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
At the end of the day we’re helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?

You were alone, left out in the cold
Clinging to the ruin of your broken home
You were falling and lonely, cry out:
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
The end of the day and we’re helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me?

Hear you falling and lonely cry out:
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
At the end of the day we’re helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?

AURORA

Found her (music). It’s like a treasure ❤ Her kind of music really fits me well. I mean, sure I have many favourite singers and songs beside her, but this one… I just lost my words for describing how good and beautiful it is. Not only the voice and the songs are good to hear, but the lyrics are also deep, I can feel her soul in it. And, somehow, I can so relate to it. I love the concepts of a girl wondering in the adventurous world, kinda lonely, asking for help but also brave: that’s what I get from the lyrics and the music videos. Just watch it by yourself, and you’ll see. If you like it and feel something when watching her music videos, then maybe our souls have something in common 🙂

The Circus and The Murders.

Belakangan ini lagi suka banget baca. Eh, don’t get me wrong. Reading is my all life-hobby hhaha, but belakangan ini rajin bacanya lagi banget-banget: selesai baca satu buku, langsung baca buku lain -> sebisa mungkin gak mau membiarkan diri ini gak ada bahan bacaan :3

Baca apa? Apaan aja. Ya, utamanya novel, sih XD. Yang penting buku, tulisan yang bener-bener dalam bentuk buku, bukan digital. Beda soalnya rasa membaca melalui layar dengan membaca melalui buku asli 🙂
