Welcome, I’m Silvana.

I am an educator, a writer, yoga instructor, singer-songwriter and most of all a human being who is endlessly walking a tightrope between my humanity and my divinity. My first love was poetry and luckily, it keeps coming back to me. I suffer from a serious case of wanderlust and occasionally seek treatment through travel. I have a pet cat named Snuggles, who likely won’t let you pet him. I like scenic routes, wandering through the woods, drinking tea out of fancy tea cups and losing track of time.

Writing has always been therapeutic for me. I write as a way to understand myself and the world around me. My writing explores the tension between the limitation and beauty of language. I hope you stick around and explore with me.

I’m glad you made it here.

Thank you so much for being here. Your presence matters. Trust me, reading my work is one of the best gifts you can give me. I love hearing from people about how something I wrote:

  • touched their lives

  • made them think of a situation in their life

  • reminded them of a book or quote

Holding space.

The writing life is often seen as a quiet one, with hours spent typing away at a computer and pondering the meaning of life. This is a space where I honor my internal call to do the work that feeds my soul and helps me heal. Thanks for being here and holding space for me to share my writing with you. My hope is that my work also holds space for you to: feel your emotions, explore your dreams, heal from the past, and live your best life in the moment.
