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]

Well, if I told you, they wouldn't be secret any more, would they?

I love that painting!

You're right : the best poets, the best writers, they lead us to the secret places of our soul, revealing some corners of which we were unaware.

Thanks for an inspiring, thought-provoking post, Roland

GYPSYWOMAN said...

well, golly, in a way, they still would, louciao - after all, this is just a virtual world! ;) however, in the event you know them yourself, i think that would satisfy even chopra! ;)

GYPSYWOMAN said...

very true, roland, just as chopra has here in this quote - and now, for me, to track my own - fortunately or unfortunately, that is all too easy of late! wonderful to have you come by - thank you so much!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

oh, gee, mister map! and you're the mapman, too! so you know ALL the secret places! well, if that's the case, i'm sure deepak will be satisfied, as well! ;)

hope all is well for you and yours!

Jenean
I only wish to visit them once, then discover new ones.
but true they exist.

My secret places are not so secret though.. as I write about them quite often. Even the words, " secret places" give me a wonderful chill. I so love words and I love the painting too! xo

Susan Deborah said...

In sort, GROW UP AND DON'T BE LAZY!

A teacher comes only for sometime. We have to do the rest!

Thanks Jenean. Sometimes I tend to become quite lazy!

Joy always,
Susan

GYPSYWOMAN said...

well, chopra is always my favorite, trish! and then, there's redon!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

how very true for me, as well, rick - although i must say that here in my blogs there are few secrets unexposed - but then, there are always more just waiting in the wings to be discovered as you say! here's to more secrets, rick! ;)

GYPSYWOMAN said...

greetings glynis! and i so know what you mean as i too have always loved words - their sound - their look - their feel - always! wonderful to have you come by!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

I love this painting, but I can't tell you my secret. I tried to comment and join your poetry blog but had technical difficulties so here I am....

Discovering these places, is the reward. Unearthing the secrets is the journey.

GYPSYWOMAN said...

oh, hello yvonne! gee, i'm so sorry about those tech problems! i wonder what was going on with blogger - please do try again over there as that one is all my own - but lovely to have you here, too, where a lot of things, but not all, are my own - thanks so much for the email - and for following along - fantastic to have you!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

you are so right, cole! love the way you put it! and it's so great to have you come by - my own distractions continue to hound me every day and prevent my visiting as much as i would like so please do forgive! your visits here are always a breath of fresh air and i thank you!
