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]

Nevine said...

Dear Jenean, even when we are not mothers, we feel ourselves mothers of someone, of something. I wonder if it is our lot in life to feel this responsibility?

Your words have left me thinking even more about my mother... so far away from me as she is.

I hope you have enjoyed a beautiful day so far! And thank you ever so much for the gift of your words.

oh, but i believe we are all mothers and fathers - parents - even if only to ourSELF - interesting your comment because i hesitated quite a while before finalizing the image of a pregnant female because i DO BELIEVE that there are many many ways of mothering, of parenting, and that one does not have to necessarily go through the biological process of giving birth to parent - but, of the image, it overall felt more "right" than the other image i was looking at of a female holding a small child - i think it is human nature to feel that yearning/caring for another person - at least, i like to think so! and your comment about your mother shows that - i'm sure your mother thinks of you and longs to have you nearer - i am so blessed to be able to "float" at least between my own scattered children who, while scattered, are close enough that i can drive to them - thanks so much for your always thought-provoking comments, dear nevine! much love - j

Hello Beautiful! I'm sorry I didn't make it by yesterday, left the house after my post and didn't get back until late last night. It appears from the comments that you have a new miracle in your life. Congratulations!!!! Oh my, how exciting! These are beautiful words with a perfect image, as always. So since we mothers never get to take a break, Happy Mother's Day to a beautiful soul and woman. xoxo
