Jauh di mata, dekat di hati?

Ada peribahasa, “jauh di mata dekat di hati”.. but what actually happens when “dekat di mata”… akankah dekat pula di hati?

Waktu masih nun jauh di bawah phon sakura, the only way to communicate with my friends here adalah via internet. Di sana kesepian, internet selalu siap sedia jadi channel paling dekat buat kongkow2 dengan yg di Indonesia. Rasanya macam2 rencana dibuat to do after I get back. Tapi….

Sampai 3 bulan setelah balik ke Indonesia, I haven’t met any of my old friends. Sekali lagi, ada jarak di antara kita. Geographically, we’re only like 60kms away. But lack of decent transportation (for me with a toddler) by my standards menyulitkan ketemu. And then there’s the busy schedule of my friends yg rata2 work 9to5 and have a packed agenda for the weekend. Then ada hal2 tak terduga like my son getting sick right on the day of a BBQ event with my old friends. And rain that prevented me from going to a bazaar at my old work place sekaligus ketemu temen2 lama di sana. BBm ada, YM ada, Fb apalagi… technology is there. Tapi ironisnya, semua hanya ngemeng aja. Nobody is really setting any dates. Nobody is really chatting or sending messages.

Damn, I feel lonely.

Dan lebih parahnya lagi, udah gak ada alasan karena berada di negara yg berbeda.

Mungkin negaranya sama, tapi dunianya sudah berbeda. Have things changed so dramatically? Why, out of all places, do I feel alienated in my own society?
