Juxtaposition of communication. What I say and what I really feel.
Saudade or the feeling of longing, can be described as an act of love and memory.
However, for those who set out on the road to distant lands and find this companion, they feel the weight of its call and often find themselves unable to describe what they lack. The prison is internal and the body feels wounded. Language frees, but needs to be recited and understood. Finding new loves, retracing the path and living with the past is a challenge that every immigrant faces. Being able to express yourself is freeing yourself from the ties that isolate you from belonging to the present.
