"A misunderstood, eighteenth-century poet, a twentieth-century homeless girl, weird maths, imaginary dragons, and a hidden Paris—it all comes together in this remarkable book about how we create lasting fulfillment and flourish."
—Dee Reinert, Editor
About the Book...
Have you ever felt that life goes on
and on, things and people change, events happen, and yet…something is still missing? The Portuguese have a word for that, it’s called saudade...
Saudade describes a feeling of melancholy or nostalgia for something that hasn’t even happened yet. It’s the strange sensation that something is missing from one’s life, but you’re not quite sure what that missing thing is. You’re just not quite fulfilled.
Eudaimonia is the Greek word that literally translates as 'good spirit' and implies a fulfilled and joyful state of being that every person can strive towards and reach but how do we get there?
