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]

In Memory of Office Chad Spicer - Georgetown Delaware Police Department -

In memory of
Officer Chad Spicer -

with thoughts and love for his beautiful baby girl and for his family -

with deepest appreciation and best wishes to
Officer Shawn Brittingham

and with gratitude to all those others who every day
offer the ultimate gift so that we may all be kept safe from harm -


Officer Spicer is the first law enforcement officer of the Georgetown Police Department to have been killed in the line of duty in thirty-seven [37] years. Vice President Joseph Biden attended this week's vigil for him in Georgetown: "It wasn't just his profession, it was who he was," said Vice President Biden. "Chad had courage. He was a valiant man. He did his duty." http://www.delmarvanow.com/article/20090905/NEWS01/909050334/-1/newsfront2/VP--Officer-had-courage

Tributes are more important than inspirations. They are a rare blessing of a life lived. So potent! Especially when the life was a daily inspiration.
Thanks for sharing this tribute and all your inspirations.

yes, truly a sad commentary -

both my daughters here know him -

this young police officer is the sole custodian of his three year old little girl - a beautiful child who is the absolute clone of him - she is now with his parents - thank you, linda, and terri, both for leaving such thoughtful messages -
