Ini menegangkan, soal lukisan Malia Obama di depan White House. Setelah beberapa respon yang muncul, pada akhir Desember 2010 aku tambahkan motif batik pada baju Malia. Kemudian muncul respon presiden Obama makan es pada 3 Januari 2011 dengan tulisan “Snow” di belakang leher. Lengkungan huruf “S” pada tulisan “Snow” itu seperti menyerupai gambar motif sayap pada batik di belakang leher Malia di lukisan itu.

Sebagaimana dimuat media, pada akhir Desember 2010 sampai awal Januari 2011 yang lalu presiden Obama dan keluarga berlibur akhir tahun di Hawaii. Diantara foto liburan itu ada foto mengenai beberapa orang yang seperti demonstran tapi bersifat mendukung presiden Obama, membawa tulisan antara lain “Mahalo” sambil berdiri di pinggir jalan saat presiden Obama akan melewati jalan itu di Hawaii pada 30 Desember 2010.

Kata “Mahalo” adalah bahasa Hawaii yang berarti “terimakasih”. Tapi kemudian aku ingat juga, saudara tiri presiden Obama yang bernama Maya Sutoro ‘kan tinggal di Hawaii, sehingga kata “Mahalo” itu seperti berarti “mahal lho”, seperti isyarat agar kalau aku jual lukisan itu jangan murah-murah.

Kemudian pada 6 Januari 2011 muncul berita presiden Obama mengumumkan posisi “Chief of Staff” yang kosong setelah ditinggalkan oleh Rahm Emanuel dan untuk sementara diisi oleh Pete Rouse, secara resmi diisi oleh William Daley sebagai White House Chief of Staff yang baru. Nama William Daley mengingatkan aku pada surat “Pengunduran Diri Rahm Emanuel Dan Ujian Nabi Daud a.s.” yang memuat soal pelukis asal Spanyol yang terkenal, Salvador Dali. Sehingga seperti memperkuat pesan “mahal lho”. Dan aku pikir ini masuk akal sebab biar bagaimana aku perlu mengeksplorasi sisa waktuku di dunia ini untuk kebaikan umat manusia dan itu butuh biaya, namun karena kegiatanku rada diluar akal biasa jadi tentu tidak mudah cari sponsor untuk membiayai, lebih baik aku biayai sendiri dari menjual lukisan-lukisanku.

Keadaan menjadi makin serius setelah muncul berita penembakan seorang anggota kongres pada 8 Januari 2011 dalam suatu acara di toko grosir Safeway, enam orang tewas tertembak. Nama anggota kongres itu adalah Gabriele Gifford, dan saat aku tulis surat ini beliau masih kritis karena terkena tembakan di kepala.

Nama belakang Gabriele Gifford itu seperti terkait dengan kesediaanku ketemu ajal untuk kebaikan umat manusia. Gifford seperti berarti “gift” yang berarti “hadiah” untuk aku ketemu ajal, dan “four die” dimana namaku Firman yang dalam bahasa Belanda atau Jerman “fir” itu berarti “empat” atau dalam bahasa Inggris “four”.

Pada saat mengumumkan berita itu di White House presiden Obama berpidato di bawah lukisan Abraham Lincoln.

Penembakan itu terjadi di toko grosir Safeway. Dulu awal tahun 80-an di Jakarta ada supermarket yang bernama Safeway, di jalan HOS Cokroaminoto dekat jalan Besuki tempat presiden Obama dulu bersekolah.
