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]

the remaking of OURSELVES...


 as
human beings
our greatness lies
not so much
in being able to
remake the world -
that is the myth of
the atomic age -
as in being able
to
remake
our
selves

This is a lovely photo. Purposeful change from within... a turning...I like to look at some changes within myself in the next year...I'm looking at generosity about how I think, move and live...should be interesting.Do you have specific changes in mind?

very profound, bluesky - and interesting that you brought up your own purposeful changes - not just with this post, actually, but, overall of late, my focus is on developing and expanding more of my creative self - and being able to mold that into a lifestyle somehow - if that makes any sense - my life focus has always been my children and still is but i want/need to get back in touch with the me who paints, writes poetry and short stories, sculpts, - the one who really colors outside the lines! :)

thanks so much for such a nice note, lady - and for coming by during your busy days! have a wonderful remainder of a saturday!

thanks so much stacey - especially cause of late i've been going through another of those less passionate less creative times - and heaven knows, my life is NOT me without both of those full force!!! :) and i'm sure you know from whence i speak! have a wonderful remainder of the day! please come again soon!

hi janine! so good to see you over this way - and thanks for note - ah, yes, gandhi! what a man - what a gift he gave us all - one of the most interesting things about this quote, i think, is how he differentiates the remake of the world as a myth of the atomic age - dynamic!!!
