Images over Time
This is meant to become a kind of photo gallery with pictures of myself through the years, moving chronologically backwards from now till the year of my birth. 
One usually sees photographs as documentary evidence testifying to some momentary flashes of a past reality. But actually, this photo gallery presents an illusionary fairy tale that says just about nothing whatsoever about the life I really lived at any period of time. However, when Facebook thought it had to set up my "timeline" mock biography, I thought I should at least provide this somewhat less hilarious record. It is — easy to see — still under construction though.

In June, two issues of “Wacana” Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia were dedicated as Festschrift in my honour.
I thank this particularly to Lilie Roosman, Susi Moeiman, Tom Hoogervorst, Aone van Engelenhoven, and Sander Adelaar.
This picture of me, holding the two issues, was taken at my Institute and placed online on the institute’s website.

I attended a talk by former President José Ramos-Horta of Timor-Leste, hosted by the German Society for international Cooperation (GIZ), and was just as deeply impressed as when I met him in 1998. One point he made, was that during the entire period of resistence, the Falintil (armed branch of Fretilin) never committed terrorist acts against Indonesian civilians.
As an Indonesian supporter of Timor-Leste independence since 1975, I later told him, I can only confirm that, because that had always kept my conscience clear in my support for their struggle. I had made a similar observation in an email of Sept. 26, 1999.
