Earth and Sky I


Drawing almost always the same red lines 

with my body on the overlaid ground

in connection with the Cosmos: following the direction of the stars.

In a connection between land and sky;

in another scale;

in a small physical distance: I feel able to run a long journey with my suspended heart.

[And what happens?]

I just unfold a hidden layer from the essence of life. 


P.S. It is about my own experience of running 6 miles along 3 months practically at the same place, 4 times per week , during the quarantine in Brazil, 2020.

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. However, in addition to physical activity, she has a more comprehensive view and is interested in relating this activity to various themes: body movement, landscapes, sounds and silence. 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.
