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]

how can you?

 How can you buy or sell the sky,  
the warmth of the land? 
The idea is strange to us. 
If we do not own the 
freshness of the air and the 
sparkle of the water, 
how can you buy them? 

Every part of the earth is sacred to my people.

Beautiful. Obama really is an orator. Wonderful image, too.

I was watching a documentary this morning. It showed an ethnic minority family in China. They kept their window open all through Spring,Summer and Fall, so that the swallows could fly in and tell them when to plant the rice. Every part of the Earth is sacred and it will provide for us if we pay attention and honor it.

This so reminds me of Chief Seattle's speech :)

Have a great weekend Jenean.

Joy always,

I have several books with Chief Seattle's amazing words. I think these words were by him and not President Obama, right? It's a beautiful post, Gypsy. I'm prepping for a hurricane right now and praying it veers off away from the oil spill. Blessings! xoxo
