Project selected and made with funds of Edital de Bolsas de Incentivo à criação literária – Literatura Infantil e Juvenil do PROAC 2015, edited by BabaYaga collective, in 2016.


My grandmother was an Japanese immigrant in Brazil. We could live together when I was a child, enjoying the nature’s seasons movements. Persimmon was a fruit very common in her childhood land and we had some trees of it in our farm.


This is a story about preserving memories and flavors.


SAUDADE is a noun that exists only in Portuguese, my native language in Brazil, that we can barely translate to “I miss you” feeling.
