One thought on “Hiraeth

  1. I looked it up of course. So intriguing, especially the musical references. I love when a word cannot actually be translated. Weighs it down with emotion.
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    “Hiraeth bears considerable similarities with the Portuguese concept of saudade (a key theme in Fado music), Brazilian Portuguese banzo (more related to homesickness), Turkish gurbet, Galician morriña, Romanian dor.”
