2. buying flowers
3. going to see ‘Yun’
4. sing a song
He always turn his face away from people whom he loved, a last song that he can remember.
He never had the courage to face the empty room in his mind. But like in the old sad song that he used to sing, I hope people can have the strength to console our own traumas, wound, and loneliness.
this story is based in a life of ‘Romain Gary’. he disguised his secret from people. but in a last will, he confessed his secret. ‘I’m Émile Ajar.’ people was shocked because everybody compared two writers.
when I discovered this, I felt so much loneliness in his whole life.
that’s the beginning of this story.
there is a man who can tell his own secret but want to be loved.
