THIS blog is about my favourite word: saudade.
Saudade is a Portuguese word that has no immediate translation in any other language. But I’ll try.
Imagine those childhood summer beach trips to Hawke’s Bay – you on your way home – the day done; cars full of cousins; shoes full of sand and sun and spray.
This blog is an attempt to capture those moments. For before we know it we, too, will walk on to a wisdom that eludes us. But before that, we will live and we will love and this, here, is proof that though our lives are but a blink of Kronos’ eyes, there are moments when we outshine the stars.
