mikaelaldo "Mourning Child" (VI)

Final piece of this series.

July this year I decided to challenge myself once again. I joined a group (of four people: @bimohendarto, @karenmiranti, Nick, and Leon) on their hike. They welcomed me in a way I didn't expect, I became even more excited. Until that time, I had never really climbed a volcano or mountain before. I stepped myself into a suckhole.

At the same time, I was still haunted by this vagueness. I had just graduated high school, and I kept asking myself constantly. “Is this what I really want to do?” which was giving up the idea of college to pursue what I really love doing. Photography. I was mourning over the death of a life in me. Days had never been so daunting for me.

I packed my bags and left home. Thousands of kilometres on the road, crossing seas, and probably countless of footsteps. Life allowed me to see itself differently. This journey made me dream vaster than Ranu Kumbolo, lake of the dream, higher than the summit of Mount Rinjani, and longer than its “Seven Hills of Regret.” Tears welled up in my eyes as I made it to the summit, realising it couldn’t be more true. “Mourning Child” series was created based on this journey. It is also a reflection of my whole life. It made me let go of the ballast that had been preventing me from dreaming. Also became a reminder that it’s not going to be easy to reach a big dream, but it doesn’t mean that it isn’t worth trying. I am forever thankful for this experience. It’s also time for me to say goodbye to this mourning child, at least for now.

mikaelaldo Found a beautiful poem written on a silver plate, as a tribute to Muh. Hanafi who perished at Ranu Kumbolo years ago. "Ranu Kumbolo," by Raden Qdon Achdiar: "Terbang bersama angin
Melinang bersama air dikawani kabut-kabut
Ditemani bukit-bukit menepas berjiwa karam tak bersuara
Yang berteriak adalah semangatmu menderu
Bersama angin, menerjal bersama gunung

Biarkan keteduhan ini memancar deras
Memberikan takjub pada tiap mata yang tajam
Tertebar dalam bentang danau tenang
Saat nafasmu berhembus di Ranu Kumbolo
Sang Danau Impian"

mikaelaldo Earlier this year I started a journey with four awesome people. It turned out to be one of the best things that happened to me, probably ever. We conquered two of the highest Indonesian volcanoes. And at the same time, we overcame ourselves.

I created a series of self portrait that I truly love, in places where I had found a piece of myself, and where I got lost. I plan to release this series in the near future, but in the mean time I'll be sharing some of the landscapes I took.
