Saudade
« on: December 09, 2013, 09:54:23 AM »
Patfancygirl posted this poetic word on Instagram along with a beautiful, delicate rendition.

Saudade
Portuguese noun.
"The love that remains." A nostalgic longing to be near again to something or someone that has been loved and then lost. Such a beautiful word.
Warm Regards,

Beautiful Stefanie! And definitely has a "nostalgic" feel to it.

I LOVE this word! In college I meet a guy from Portugal who taught me this word and how to say "Give me a kiss." Seems like he had an agenda, haha. Looking forward to writing this word out tonight!

Linda that is mesmerizing!! I love the shading on the ink, it matches so well with the fluidity of the letters.

Oooh! I like that style, too! I agree with Schin - nice fluidity - very even rhythm. Your eyes just saunter up and down the word. Very nice.

Thanks for resurrecting this thread!!! I lived in Portugal for over a year and when I came home, this was the word I missed the most--there just isn't an English equivalent. You could say I have saudades for saudade... :)

I still find myself saying this word frequently in my head and that was almost 20 years ago...such a lovely word. I just spent the last 20 minutes writing it over and over....:)
