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]

a walk through the valley...



there is no easy walk 
to freedom anywhere, 
and many of us will have 
to pass through the 
valley of the 
shadow of death 
again and again 
before we reach 
the mountaintop 
of our desires...

Your words seem to have calmed me as someone I love is in a valley and my heart is a bit shaken for him...this isn't easy being a bystander but so comforting to be reminded we ALL have our walk to freedom. Thank you.

And it is quotes as these that strengthen us and sustain us during those times of pain and shadow of death.

Courage and love for your journey of life,
Susan

Very nicely said. But... are you sure about this?...

... because most of the time what you find at the top of the mountain is violent winds, cold, ice and clouds.

what you say is true, sir - perhaps nelson mandela was being more figurative than literal - but point made! :)
