This book is the result of many years of work which persisted, despite taking a rather circuitous route through a life journey filled with interruptions, including relocation to another country. As the decades progressed, both the writing and the writer matured, awaiting the right moment for the work to resume and coalesce into Poems and Stories; later being translated from the original Brazilian Portuguese, the author’s mother tongue.
