Merry Christmas!

I remember, it was just a last year, and a couple years ago, and few years ago, I wished that I could celebrate christmas time outside home.

Today, I do celebrate Christmas away from home. Well, I wish I could retract my words.

Being far away from home at Christmas time is sad. It is even worse, when you scroll up and down your social media, and find people celebrate Christmas either with family, friends or lover.

Since, I don’t have something special to do at Christmas time, so I might find it a little boring and sad. Duhh…

Anyway,

Forget the sadness boredom or whatever. Still, we have to be thankful for each days that is given.

MERRY CHRISTMAS everybody!

 

Merry Christmas

A Birthday Present

“I barely buy something for somebody with money..”

“Uhmm.. Pardon? You’re stingy, eh?”

“I always make something even though it’s ugly but at least, I put a lot effort in it, and not everybody can make whatever i make”

“Like what?”

“I drew a picture for my mother’s birthday, and I can’t draw. I wrote happy birthday greeting in chinese for my father when I was in high school, it was because I learned chinese, and I didn’t like learning chinese.”

“What else do you do?”

“I draw a birthday cake on wall then mash it up with the toys. Take a picture of it. Create a toy photography with simple drawing for somebody who used to be special. My drawing is like a kindergarten kid’s, I love my toys, I like taking toy pictures but I don’t think he’d like it”

“Then, why did you do?”

“Because kid.. I tell you what.. It doesn’t matter if they like it or not, I believe it will be the way to remember them about us.”

“…….”

“I was told by my math private tutor, if you love somebody, and you want to give them something, make them something instead of buying something. It may not change their feeling about you, but at least, they will remember you, because I bet no one would treat them like that…”

“Oh wow…”

“It works. I have been there. Feel so special when people make you something, because you can buy everything if you have money. It won’t be so special anymore….”

“:)”

Then, we both smile from ear to ear today.

Abbi, The Right Brainy Kid

According to google, Right Brain is the right-hand side of the human brain, believed to be associated with creative thought and the emotions.

According to buzzfeed.com (hey! it’s my fav sites ever!) , people with right brain is easily swept up by your imagination, or it could be people with right brain has an easier time writing a silly message on their bills than actually calculating tip, or… Well, you surely can look it up on 19 Everyday Struggle Of Being A Right-Brained Person by yourself.

As a person with the right brain dominance, I could not agree more. Well, some of them can relate to. Particularly it’s the part of “you need to have music on when doing work, even though it can make your mind wander”

YES!  I do that a lot. I’m the person who gets difficult on focusing a thing. Everytime I do work, of course there will be music on, but later, my mind will wander through somewhere, and my eyes will be just staring blankly. No wonder, if a friend used to call me ‘a dreamer’

Speaking of right brain, I’m more attracted to pictures than numbers, more attracted to fantasy than reality, more attracted to art than science. I love spending time reading, watching and creating the photograph of toys. Through, toying with toys, I could find a little me, an inner child inside me. I could even ‘talk’ to them, or just ask them to do a pose for me. I treat them like my imaginary friends.

Still, about right brain. I guess every single one of us ever had asked to draw something at kindergarten. Am I right? Yet, we did that gladly, even though, most of us will draw twin mountain with a road in the middle. At least, we evidently have a creativity inside us.

Unfortunately, there only few people who retain their desire to draw. The rest of us were leaving the kindergarten habits as a little painter. We were told by adults, being a drawer or a painter will not make you successful in life. Doubtless, we left them all behind.

Moreover, I recently was told by a friend. He met a wonderful kid with great right brain. I honestly write this post, because I want to show him off around. Additionally, being a person with strong right brain is not embarrassing at all. Even though, your thoughts maybe a little weird for most people, but still they cannot disrespect you.

Just like this little boy. He is from a broken home family, presumed as a weirdo, but we think, I personally think he is admirable.

Abbi Gusma Terryno

“I’ve got a little friend called Abbi, who is in the third grade of an elementary school. Abbi lives with his mother in a small village in Sragen, Central Java.

He is a wonderful kid with the great right brain!
I immediately became of his first greatest fans when I saw his works that he had made.
Hopefully, you will love them too :)

There are some of Abbi’s work:

They all are outstanding, RIGHT?

The rest of his work are also amazingly great, even though he is only a third grader 😉

For kids like him, it should not be underestimate. We as an adult should encourage them more creative thinking, instead of degrading them.
