In Norwegian they talk about 'Lengsel'. In German about 'Sehnsucht'. In Portuguese about 'Saudade'.
And in Dutch? In The Netherlands we don't have specific words for
- longing for what is lost or disappeared behind the horizon: Saudade
- longing for moving to places (or knowledge) where you are not right now: Lengsel
- longing for an ideal world that surpasses everything that's unfinished or imperfect in one's life: Sehnsucht
Mark that 'the neighbors garden' is a metaphor for 'everything in one's life'!
Do I have an answer to every question or problem? No, it's quite to opposite. All my answers are temporary. In a way a hypothesis. One cloud. One word. One song. One strange look. One touch. One kiss. One ... - it's always a pleasant surprise - and suddenly I just don't know what to do or answer next.
Clarice Lispector: "So long as I have questions to which there are no answers, I shall go on writing."
You. Myopia yes but so beautiful. Beautiful a la Saudade.
P.S. Some may say that the Dutch word 'weemoed' correlates to the different kind of longings mentioned above but that word is in my country non-existent. No longer in common use. It's archaic.
