Sosok dia pada Zoe Kazan


This is the true and impossible story of my very great love.
In the hope that she will not read this and reproach me, I have withheld many telling details: her name, the particulars of her birth and upbringing, and any identifying scars or birth marks. All the same, I cannot help but write this for her, to tell her "I'm sorry for every word I wrote to change you, I'm sorry for so many things. I couldn't see you when you were here and, now that you're gone, I see you everywhere."

One may read this and think it's magic, but falling in love is an act of magic, so is writing. It was once said of Catcher In The Rye, "That rare miracle of fiction has again come to pass: a human being has been created out of ink, paper and the imagination." I am no J.D. Salinger, but I have witnessed a rare miracle. Any writer can attest: in the luckiest, happiest state, the words are not coming from you, but through you. She came to me wholly herself, I was just lucky enough to be there to catch her.

Saya seharusnya menulis banyak tentang film ini. Tentang Calvin, tentang Ruby, seperti bagaimana cerita ini mungkin mirip dengan kisah saya, atau bagaimana cerita ini seharusnya.
Dan saya jatuh cinta lagi, dengan sosok dia yang ada pada Zoe Kazan.

Tuhan mungkin punya maksud lain, mempertemukan saya dengan film seperti ini. Menghadirkan sosok Calvin, novelist muda yang selalu benci setiap kata jenius dialamatkan padanya.

Yang sedang saya pikirkan, Tuhan dan mungkin semesta mencoba menyemangati saya menyelesaikan novel pertama saya, sebelum 23 Juli nanti usia saya genap dua puluh satu tahun. Bismillah.
