I learned a new word today…

a Portuguese word without an exact English translation…

Saudade

I am thinking of my Father now who’s birthday would have been today and how I miss his instruction of Life…the lessons he taught me like “Improvise, Adapt and Overcome”…

I am thinking of the Indigo Sea with with all of it’s intensity and how the experiences affected me…

I am thinking of the Muse of Me and how I long for her…

I am thinking of my little She and how I feel while sailing on the Indigo Sea…

The way the word was explained to me is that it relates to nostalgia…but more…

As I questioned my friend who knows the word, I find…

An emptiness for something one cannot have back physically in this moment of Saudade, but one can spiritually…

as if to miss or yearn for something in a nostalgic way…

almost a sadness involved…

yet a happiness can exist…

a burning poetic desire for something creating near pain in one’s soul…

Saudade is where I am now…

with the feeling…

a Peace is found.
