                   JARDIM DA SAUDADE

jardim da saudade

                   GARDEN OF LONGING

Saudade is a Portuguese language word that is impossible to translate adequately. It describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic longing for something or someone that was held dearly but is now lost. The feeling, somehow, is also very sweet because it recalls something truly loved that survives in the heart -- a loss that lives on and brings a guiding light.
