Serenity: the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.

It is not easy to find Serenity in the crowded, fast paced, and polluted city such as Jakarta. But if you are lucky enough to stay in the suburb that surround Jakarta, wake up early enough before dawn and walk outside in the morning, there are still places that are calm and peaceful.

Feels Like Bali

Naturally, I feel calm and peaceful each time I’m going for a run. All the trouble in the world are, for the moment I’m on the run, put aside, replaced by intense focus on finishing the run.

But, when passing through an undeveloped piece of road leading to a housing complex, my focus shift from finishing the run to the scenery. To the morning sun ray passing through the leaves. To the morning mist that recede to give way to daylight.

This is the place and time where I find my serenity.
