Langit Bukan Biru

Sebagai seorang yang suka warna biru, saya terkejut membaca beberapa artikel yang menyebutkan bahwa manusia tidak mengenal warna biru hingga era modern.
Sebuah penelitian menyebutkan, tidak ditemukan kata biru dalam teks-teks kuno, baik dalam hikayat Islandia, teks Yunani, Cina, Jepang, Yahudi, Arab, bahkan teks Hindu kuno. (Yang menimbulkan pertanyaan selanjutnya, dideskripsikan sebagai warna apakah kulit Khrisna dan Wishnu pada teks kuno tersebut).
Faktanya, warna biru memang jarang ditemukan di alam. Sedikit hewan berpigmen kulit biru (burung kasoari ini pengecualian tentunya, dan mungkin ia tidak hidup di satu wilayah dengan perabadan-peradaban kuno tersebut ya), hampir tidak ada tumbuhan berwarna biru, bahkan pupil biru pun terbilang sangat jarang.
Karena itulah tidak heran jika warna biru pertama kali digunakan oleh masyarakat Mesir, sebagai komunitas yang pertama kali menemukan dan menggunakan pewarna biru.

Jika tidak pernah belajar tentang kata biru, kira-kira kita akan menyebut langit dengan kata apa ya?

Sad Face

His 😦 face is ambiguous. Is it a sad face due to captivation or it’s just his default face anywhere and human (read: me) thought it’s a sad face, as if any living being is emotionally resemble a human?

Behind The Scene

Behind the scene:
I was sitting at the edge of a cliff. Probably the best spot to see sunset. Then a guy called me “Hello.. Hello..” (Hello from the other side?)
.
Caution: this is not a romantic story
.
I turned my face from the sea, I looked at him and found out that he didn’t speak Indonesian nor English. He spoke his heart out with his body language, which is ok for certain cases. The problem is..
He waved his hand away, shoo shoo, signaling me to move away hahaha
Realizing he brought his team complete with the groom and the bride to had prewedding shoot, I moved and sat in another spot.
.
Moral story:
– Be prepared to be asked to move from the spot you think you have. We own nothing in this life after all.
– Don’t get too attached to something, be flexible.
– Get ready for second, third plan. Don’t be too rigid, life’s full of surprise, being too rigid will only hurt you.
– Don’t take things personally. Sometimes it’s not about you at all. Like at all..

Veil and sunset are perfect combination. I was happy taking this picture and that’s enough.
