I can accept failure. Everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying. - Michael Jordan
I love how today even in the car-and-motorcycle-loving place like my hometown there is this growing consciousness of not relying too much on them. There's in fact a whole community dedicated of going to the workplace by bike. Whether the reason is ecological, economical, or people simply just want to stay in shape is irrelevant.

Kearifan lokal adalah kata kunci yang mulai santer terdengar di masyarakat awam. Ada semacam 'kesadaran' untuk menggali kembali sesuatu dari masa lalu. Melihat artefak masa lampau dengan sudut pandang yang berbeda, bukan sekedar nostalgia atau eksotisme belaka Secara konseptual, istilah “kearifan lokal” sebenarnya mulai terdengar santer sekitar 20 tahun yang lalu.
