About this blog

The author

The author: Mariana Villas-Boas (villasboas.mariana@gmail.com) – By the way, I’m not narcissistic – not any more than any other writer anyway – I just don’t know how to get this damn picture any smaller. Not exactly the technology queen here!

A writer is a sculptor whose tools are words. (Sounds pretty good so far, right?)

This blog is an account of a journey full of toll charges. It is about re-engaging with an old neglected passion – the art of words – while embracing a 9-month long nomadic lifestyle and all the unexpected adventures it throws my way.

The word adventure comes from the Latin ad venire, which literally means “to come to, reach, arrive at”. This blog is an account of the discovery of personal definitions of the words that are my tools of labor and of the unexpected ways fickle creativity has chosen to engage me. I surrender completely to her (obviously female) whims!

Over the next 9 months, these experiences will be set to the page in this blog as a gift of my first written work – my new personal lexicon. All new posts can be found below. Enjoy.

    • Thanks so much for your kind comment. This is a project blog – it has to do with the year I’ve been living since September while my husband has been completing his masters program.

Who knows what the future holds!
