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 -


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]

stuck in ghosts...

i been livin' with ghosts all my life
can't git rid 'uv 'em try as i might
even been to the bottom of the well
thinking nobody could tell
if i went all to hell
and back
but what the heck
i was just stuck down there up to my neck
in ghosts...

Wow! I think this one may just be one of my most favourites of yours now. It gave me goosebumps. I'm glad your blog is back up and running! I've missed your words xo

dem ghosts, dem demons. you do right. you seek 'em out. you interact with 'em. only way to really live.


thanks so much, lady! glad you like - there is a part II that goes with it but haven't decided if i'm gonna keep the 2 together yet - anyway - it's just one of those little things that popped into my head one day - have no clue why or from whence it came - but then, i very rarely do have - so happy to have you come by - it's been so long that i feel as if i've been away for months - wonderful to be back in blogland!


yes, demons and devils and spirits and ghosts - all around us all the time - wanting needing getting our attention as best they can! ;)
wonderful to see you ed - thanks so much for coming by!

Good one, Gypsy! Love it. And this image is eerie enough to fit the words beautifully!

wv:cavendu - cave into you?!


don't know where this piece came from - well, that's really no different than a lot of things i do - but it just came one day - there's a part two but haven't yet decided if it's done yet - doesn't feel done - so -
