The Kaboverdianus have a word “sodadi” which doesn’t translate well into English, but it’s one of my favorite words. It’s a longing, sometimes wanting to be in two places irreconcilably. Growing up in the rural areas, I always dreamed of the excitement of the city, but when I’m in the city, I miss the greenery of the country. Sodadi. Even though I’m in the country now with a beautiful view out my window, these curtains really caught my eye.
