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]

the game...





we both knew the game
it wasn’t gonna be tame

we both knew the rules
we weren’t no fools

but when the game did end
with what could we defend

both our hearts   
our weakest parts
 
lay broken and blue
in a blood-filled pool

but we both knew the rules

That's a sad ending! But we all know the risks whenever we begin something.

I prefer no rules in love... they are usually against LOVE itself.
Am so happy to be back to read you... sorry for not coming before.

Lots of love.

sad - but realistic in most such situations - but - again - we both knew the rules -

and even then, wouldn't we dance the dance again, if given the chance? i would!

one of my favorite sayings to my little grandchildren is "and what are the rules at my house?" - and the response i've taught them is: THE ONLY RULE IS THAT THERE ARE NO RULES AT YOUR HOUSE! which is the way i've chosen to live my live as much as possible - however, there are times when societal rules prevail - sadly - but i digress -

and wonderful to have you come by, lady dulce! love having you!

This is quite wonderful---And as I read it I wanted to ask you---Have you ever written lyrics to music--Songs, or whatever? I think you would be brilliant at it!

good morning, naomi! how wonderful to have you come by and to leave such kind and inspirational words! while i have not written specifically with lyrics in mind, i do love the rhythm and flow of a lot of my pieces - but, i am a word person and so love the sound of words - all words - especially love hearing them in different ways -
again, i thank you!

oh, i meant to mention that the other day i saw a magnificently beautiful white cat on tv and immediately thought of your sweetie who is king among kings of beautiful cats!

have a great day, lady, and do come again soon!
