Saudade

austinkleon:

The famous saudade of the Portuguese is a vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist, for something other than the present, a turning towards the past or towards the future; not an active discontent or poignant sadness but an indolent dreaming wistfulness.

Which reminds me of Chega de Saudade, which some say is the first bossa nova song, which makes perfect sense.
