Boy, do we need it, but with this atmosphere [lit. & fig.]—this air—it just doesn’t seem possible. We’re all holding our breath, afraid of what will come in if we let it out.
But we have to keep on keeping on, which is why I've returned to my Tre-Re, Retrospective Re-Release of my recorded music, where I left off when Covid came.
Chega de Saudade, by epic duo Antonio Carlos Jobim & Vinicius de Moraes, literally means “full of missing,” or longing (although I translate it differently, you’ll see).
Saudade is a unique, profound word, referring to the ache of missing someone, of longing for something—that hole inside that cries out to be filled by someone or some thing. Sound familiar? In my experience, creativity (in this case music) fills it just about best.
Scroll down this page and click on the line at the bottom that says, "The current Tre-Re is: Chega de Saudade"
& Thanks for listening!
I’m hoping you’re okay, that this finds you relatively healthy and stable! Really.
Sending my best to you~
