Feliz Dia da Saudade

Happy Saudade Day, people. Get into the mood, spill a bit of wine on the floor para os santos and enjoy a couple of musings by the master of the spirit, Lisboa’s own Fernando Pessoa. Abração!


Pessoa“Estou só e sonho saudade.
E como é branca de graça
A paisagem que não sei,
Vista de trás da vidraça
Do lar que nunca terei!”


“My soul is impatient with itself, as with a bothersome child; its restlessness keeps growing and is forever the same. Everything interests me, but nothing holds me. I attend to everything, dreaming all the while. […]. I’m two, and both keep their distance — Siamese twins that aren’t attached.”
