This photo is taken at Jalan Tikus in Medan, North Sumatra. Jalan means street, and tikus means mouse (a tikus besar is a rat). But a jalan tikus is also a shortcut. And, of course, it is important to know your shortcuts (they tend to move around though).
I explain the meaning of Amor Fati here (English and Indonesian catalog text). And here (English) and here (Indonesian catalog text) for a more recent and longer essay. And for a further selection of my writings see here.
