  THE BOOK

“Saudades” is a book that tells a real story. It is my love story with Henrique Bruno. The book is narrated through the mails that we wrote to each other along our relationship.

It is a true story in search of meaning and transcendence.

                                                       

  THE REAL STORY

I have never been in love. I thought that feeling butterflies in the stomach were romantic inventions. I did not believe it until I experience it. I began feeling them when I was with Henrique, I thought it or I imagine it. Henrique and I met in 2003. During six months, we studied together a post-grade in Madrid. He was my platonic love for a couple of years after my return to Monterrey. We wrote to each other by mail once at a time.

In September 2006, I wrote him a mail to say hello. Four months later, he answered me, and then was when our love story began…

                               

THE PROJECT

"Saudades" began as an exercise in mourning four years ago. This year I started to post on Facebook my writing process. My contacts and friends asked me about what I was sharing. Little by little, I was confessing that I was writing my own story. It was very motivating to realize the interest that had been in my text. They constantly asked me when were the publishing will be done. I thought about the possibility of doing so, but at the same time, I asked myself for what I post it?          

                            

THE CAUSE

Knowing that there was interest in my story was not enough reason to publish it. I needed feeling that by sharing the book it will transcend in some other way.

THE GOAL

The goal of this project is the preselling of the first 200 hundred books. With that will collect, the highest expenses of publication are going to be paid. With the 100% of profit of these first 200 hundred books, I will buy personal DVD players for children and youngsters so they may spend a better time during their cancer treatment. I will personally visit them and give them my book sharing my story.

                     

THE TITLE: "SAUDADES"

“Saudade” is a state of nostalgia, desire for one who we love, but who is absent…

The love that lasts after someone leaves our lives. It is the recollection of feelings, memories, places, moments, which sometime brought us happiness, and now awake our senses and detonate our emotions.

Strange happiness, the one that comes from accepting and living with nostalgia. The happiness of knowing that we love, we desire, we think about who is far away. A melancholy that we never stop feeling, but that inspired the soul to keep on going, to continue living.
