Cate un pic de dor..sau sehnsucht strica.

Si tu ai simtit candva dor.

Dor de casa, de cineva drag, de un sentiment.

Dorul adauga atata intensitate unui sentiment cand stii ca va veni momentul in care dorul va lua sfarsit. E momentul acela cand ce-ti doresti se indeplineste.

Unul din cuvintele mele preferate din limbile pe care le cunosc e din germana: “sehnsucht” si nu se poate traduce cu exactitate. Ca multe alte cuvinte din germana, sehnsucht este compus din 2 cuvinte ‘das sehnen’ – a vedea si ‘das siechen’ – boala/afectiune, dar alaturarea lor nu inseamna o afectiune a vederii, nicidecum.

Cand ai o stare in care tanjesti dupa ceva profund, simti ‘sehnsucht’. Iar uneori ti-e dor si de asa ceva. E un dor mai adanc decat dorul, plus ca ‘sehnsucht’ suna mai frumos.

Si daca mi-a fost dor de ‘sehnsucht’, nu-mi mai este, pentru ca simt.



Some longing doesn’t hurt from time to time.

We’ve all missed someone, our home, or a feeling at some point in our life.

I think that longing add intensity to feelings, expecially when you know that the longing will come to and end at some point because what you long for will get to you.

One of my favorite words is from German ‘sehnsucht’. It cannot be translated and it’s quite hard to explain it as well. It’s composed from 2 words “das sehen” – to see and “das siechen” – disease, but the word itsefl doesn’t mean whatever you are thinking of now while putting the two words next to each other.

‘Sehnsucht’ has much deeper and beautiful meaning. It’s a powerful yearning for something/someone, more powerful than missing or longing. More powerful and profound. One can also miss feeling like this.

If I missed feeling ‘sehnsucht’, i don’t anymore ’cause i feel it.

  1. Hello, wonderful photo. And yes in German you can compose two or more words of (nearly) any kind to create a new word. It’s fun and I love it. You can express so much with those. Hab einen wundervollen Tag!
