I visited art museums in Vienna,
they showed the collection of paintings by famous artists.
It’s so impressive to see how the artists were infusing their paintings with narrative details,
through tone, color, contour line, gesture, composition, and symbolism,
to tell us unfolding stories.

Me and Tobias woke up at 4:30 am,

Only when the years grow cold do we see that the pine and cypress are the last to fade; only when we get into trouble do we know who our genuine friends are.

were taking place on the same day: on 17 April 2019.
About 190 million Indonesian were eligible to vote.
About 245,000 candidates were be running
for more than 20,000 national and local legislative seats
across a country made up of around 18,000 islands.
It’s a massive complex democratic undertaking.

This season of my life,
and many young children
suffering and dying from DIPG,
cause me struggling,

A little conversation at the Maiers, before sleeping but already in bed.
Me: You’re so hot!
(Tobi blushing from my compliment)
Tobi: No, I’m not… you must be so in love with me.
