we all are gypsies of a sort wandering traveling through this life other lives space and time here there and yon on roads less traveled - this is a written and visual journal of my own travels - imagined and/or real - come along with me - we'll dance among the stars under the sun and over the moon - share our stories around the campfire - come along -

this site is simply a streamofconsciousness rambling of words and images in which i find meaning and beauty - there is no organized order of thought or format -
poetry painting and writing on love and life and things thereof from the heart and through the eyes of a louisiana gypsy spirit travelin' roads less traveled...enjoy -

THE GYPSYWOMAN WORLD

My photo
A...WOMAN IN MOTION WITH HAIR AS DARK AS NIGHT HER EYES WERE LIKE THAT OF A CAT IN THE DARK... SHE WAS A GYPSYWOMAN... she danced round and round... from the fire her face was all aglow... she was dancing... dancing... waiting for the RISING SUN... loving caring relationships are like THE RISING SUN...we are nourished by their warmth...we are energized by their strength...we grow in their light...we find shelter and solace there...they are our sanctuary... born in the sign of the sun, i am a true LEO-love the sun and its hot orange red fire-passionate in and about everything i do-i believe in instant chemistry charisma love/lust at first sight-in the magic of the eyes and the beauty of the soul-in the instant recognition familiarity in meeting someone from a past life and in the knowledge that we might meet in a future life-i believe that we are each ageless and flawless-i believe in the beauty of the moment-the whisper of yesterday-the hope of tomorrow-the power of forgiveness for even ourselves-the absolute and total beauty of love---[credit to brian hyland and curtis mayfield]

astronomical birthday "shower"...

two perseids meteors and their radiant (crossing of dotted line) - two star constellations are indicated.

just in time for my birthday, the gods have favored me with their annual astronomical visual feast beginning late august 11 - the persides meteor shower - till dawn on august 12 - these celestial wanderers begin at a point in the constellation perseus - even though sister moon is in her waning gibbous phase about midnight, there should be plenty to see before and after moonrise - so, gather round and cast your eyes toward the heavens for the show of the evening!

The persides were always my favorite sky show! When the kids were growing up, they always represented a last, get-away mini vacation, before we had to go back to school. I don't know what part of Maryland you live in, but if it's anywhere near the Chesapeake, you should find the darkest, most deserted beach you can find, and watch the show from there.
Enjoy the show my friend, and Happy Birthday.
