It’s read as sau-da-jee as one of my writer friends told me. It’s a new word for me but it was quite timely and accidental that I discovered this word. For the past weeks I have this feeling that I can’t fully explained. I can’t find the write words to describe it.
I was searching the net when I stumbled upon kartoen.be and the strip below caught my attention:
I have a tendency to be nosy. Seeing that there are comments on this strip I decide to check it out lo and behold, I read the term… saudade. He provided the link explaining it from wikipedia.com. It says there:
“Saudade is a Portuguese and Galacian word for a feeling of nostalgic longing for something or someone that one was fond of and which is lost. It often carries a fatalist tone and a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might really never return.”
Other line that struck me says:
“It may also be translated as a deep longing or yearning for something which does not exist or is unattainable.”
And with that, Mr. month of June… I hope you bring me a better feeling than this. Mid-year. The last half to have a life to live, fight for and make the most of 2010.
(Which reminds me, I haven’t hit any beach yet and summer (by month) is over already)
