I had prepared another photo for this week's Sepia Scenes, but the sudden loss of my beloved aunt yesterday made me change my mind. This is my tribute to her. I still feel great grief and my tears are not yet dry... However, there is an important issue I have to share with you. Thank you for taking the time to read this post. It may save someone's life.
Let me point out about safe driving. If you are weary or drunk, please make sure that you (or another person with you) do not go behind the wheel! It is one of the reasons which got my aunt (may she rest in peace now) into a terrible traffic accident in Purworejo, Central Java.
She was a magnificent woman: loving, caring and inspiring me through her entire live. A piece of my heart is gone now, but I will be okay and treasure her memories... She will be missed, but not forgotten. Do me a favor and hug your beloved ones. Treasure them as you still can.
Love to all of you, especially my family and friends.
PS. I picked this photo because my aunt is dressed in a Kebaya. It reminds me of RA Kartini one of Indonesia's women heroines who fought for equal education. My aunt was sure a heroine for me. I will miss her a lot.
