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 -

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]

Socrates taught us : No one is. Everyone is becoming. Like flames, we look like objects ... when we are in fact processes.

Thanks for visiting. I have been overwhelmed with work and with injuries to my body through work ... sigh ... why can't I be Clark Kent?

I promise to visit more often. Gypsy, my cat, gives you, her fellow namesake, a regal nod of the head. Princesses.

Miss you. Where do you disappear sometimes? Hope you are well :)

Joy and passion always,
Susan

So lovely to be visiting you again, Jenean. I am here for my promised cup of tea... and any flavor will do... it is the company that counts, after all. I have been overwhelmed lately, and started to make my visits yesterday but then ran out of time. So, I will be lingering here a while. I see I have quite a bit of catching up to do, both here and at your other places. I will leave my marks in the sand... for you to read.

And what a lovely way to begin my visit here, with a sublime thought and a lovely photo. So very talented that Isadora Duncan... and died so tragically... but still I think it was quite romantic how she passed.

And off I go to my next lovely piece to read and enjoy at your campfire...

oh, dearest nevine! it really is so wonderful to have you back once more! and i'm thrilled you've dropped by - it's a sticky hot day so i thought a big glass of iced red zinger with an orange twist might be just the thing for a day like today - let's go out on the veranda and sit - and visit - here, take this wingback wicker rocker - and there's a japanese silk fan i love, it gets so warm here and there's no breeze today - don't you love the fragrance of those cape jasmine? i brought them here from louisiana, you know - i'm so glad you're here, now tell me all about what's been going on with you!

and yes, isadora, a woman extraordinaire for sure! and a woman for all times! i love her story too!

hello my beloved Cousin...just dropping in for a monent to leave a little footprint in your sand. I'm reminded of Anna Pavlova, the Russian prima-ballerina who so divinely danced the Swan....after having been told, when she was a child, that she was too short and didn't have the "body type" to be a ballerina, yet she became the world's most famous, and was lost too soon! Dancing....our souls' expressions of the harmonies of our universe. What a lovely thought and a lovely photo, as always from your little corner of the world. Hugs, from your Cuz in FL

and you, cousin, how wonderful of you to drop in like this! always SO look forward to your visits! oh, yes, pavlova! what a woman! a dancer! and yes, lost far too soon! i took ballet when i was about 7 or so - loved it although like pavlova didn't really have the body type for it - but i did love it! however, leading the life of a gypsy caravan as we did, ballet lessons were not always possible - 6 weeks here, 8 weeks there - etc - ah, well, such is life! anyway, so glad you came by! have a fab remainder of the weekend, dear cousin!

The eternal struggle, for me at least. So short and so powerful. I too have some catching up to do, so you may see me warming myself by your fires over the next few nights. Hope you are feeling better and staying cool.

GYPSYWOMAN said...

oh, how wonderful to see you again, cole! i've been wondering of you - so glad you are here again - missed your visits!!! make yourself at home here - sit and browse as long as you like!
