Reading and writing is just like two sides of one coin that when you love to read then you stored a huge information in the memory and up load it whenever needed and write it down. And how to write it down easy, depend on how you kept your habit to practices regularly.
My regular writing come up to the surface in the last 3 years when I spent my long holiday in California, USA took advantage of Public Library facilities, to sit down uninterrupted.
In the last 6 months I spend my time to write a special theme about tourist destinations, including culture and traditional hand waving.

A friend form Queensland, Ofi Ayal Flint like to read my writings in my Face book wall, up loaded or linked to this blog or my family blog www.topramos.blogspot.com including my Biography of my First thing in my life and also sad story of my sister in a special topic and she eager to know more about the interesting stories about my family life.
Surprised, I never thought that she read and like poems too written by two authors, one local and one foreigner The poems apply universally to every one, beyond the border. I copied one English version from www.poemhunter.com , and the other one is from local author, Nopalina Manurung..
In the next holiday, Flints family plan visit Indonesia and especially her origin Kupang and stop by in Bali, hopefully Lake Toba and Jakarta too where we may meet with his hubby Stephen and 2 boys, Master 7 and 11 and off course shoot the picture with me as a writer
A reap of writing and reading come later by acknowledge of our readers, so we are not hesitate to say to our self and to the public as well : "I am a writer". This statement could elevate our spirit and soul to keep writing for joy or for living
