"Life is the art of meeting, although there is so much mismatch for life."
Vinicius de Moraes
During this period of social isolation, I started to think about the people who were part of my life. Which ones I insist on being present and which were beautiful meetings, but today the relationship no longer make sense.
And when I think of the stories I want to describe in words so profound that others would not be able to translate them.
"Wonderful Journey" was written on a map of meetings and feelings. The only word I absolutely wanted to write was “saudade”, but as the background in Portuguese with the main phrase in English would be strange, I decided to use words from several languages, which in the end symbolize the immensity of these meetings in the world.
