/ I guess everyone has some kind of a moment in life where you find yourself wondering around / seeking something / somewhere / some kind of shelter… a place of comfort… where you can recognise yourself through the feeling of belonging.
/ in other words, a feeling that can easily be understood as if not being in one’s home town… one’s country… / “dépaysement”… as said in french / expressing the sensation of void when separated from where you feel you belong.
/ I guess you can also be easily conflicted about where that place may be, if things arent as settled as emotionally expected / when in a certain random state of existence, or just transitioning… maybe… / and where the portuguese term “saudade” is probably as reliable as “dépaysement”, although in the meaning of longing for something you love so deeply / such a part of you / and which somehow feels lost.
