Listening with the feet


Prespes, Florina, Greece – July, 2019.

The practice of writing, so vivid long ago,

Today, asleep.

Attempts in vain, even in Portuguese!

The tongue curled.

English? French?

Nothing, nothing.

But, then, what was left for me?

There was silence – and the ears opened!

Extended listening in an augmented reality,

Attentive and dazzled.

In the “Wild Dream” of Prespes.

[Seeing with my ears,

Walking on the waters,

Listenting to the ground,

Crossing a triple border].

I create my own language…


About Ana Villas Boas

Ana Villas Boas lives and works in Santo André, São Paulo, Brazil. She holds Master’s Degree in Sociology, focusing on sociability, daily life and urbanism. She works as sociologist, in the area of Urban Planning at the Municipality, and also as instructor of Kundalini Yoga. Since 2011 she is a long distance runner and became an athlete as a child, as a swimmer, besides practicing triathlon, rowing, and canoeing.

Her attitude is inspired by oriental philosophies, and is focused on a poetic sensibility of the paths and also the imaginary. Departuring from her own body abilities, mind, environment and sensations she is able to express thoughts and emotions on writing, and more recently, on translucid experience with drawing and painting.
