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]

the voices...

i hear the voices in my head
never listening to what they’ve said

for while they ring of truth and right
they leave me cold in the night

to be held close in love and light
is all I want with all my might

that part of me that seeks to reason
i leave to ponder in life's seasons

i choose instead my heart’s own sounds
as with their warmth they me surround

and so my heart rules ‘oer my head
i’ll live by love when all is said
i'll live by love

There has never been a more lovely emotion by which to live, Jenean. And who ever renders it as beautifully as you do? You are a woman after your own heart, and your words always ring so true in mine.

So lovely to be back reading your beautiful words, Jenean!



and so wonderful to have you here once more, nevine! such kindred spirits that we are, your absences are always deeply felt - and as always, your words deeply felt, as well!

a part of me always wants to reason...I am slowly learning to live by love and listen to my heart. Thanks for sharing this


a life lesson well worth learning, for sure - i've never been disappointed when listening to my heart - my reasoning, a different story! ;)

"And will be your hope
When you feel like it's over
And will pick you up
When your whole world shatters
You'll look up and see, Love has a face.."

There is a line from a wonderful song from a Broadway show called "Plain & Fancy"...(Jerry Bock & Sheldon Harnick:
"......The Heart has reasons the mind cannot know...."...This is so true, as is your lovely Poem....

Thanks for all your kind and caring words during my absence....Illness can really put you down, down, down.....!


hello naomi! so wonderful to have you up and about over this way - and so kind to leave such nice words - 'tis true that the heart often has reasons the mind cannot know - at least in my own case - again, great to see you and i thank you for coming by - feel all better every day - hugs

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I was wrong...PLAIN & FANCY is by Arnold Horwitt and Albert Hague...

The complete thought of the line is:

".....The Heart Has Reasons The Mind Cannot Know, So, Follow Your Heart Wherever It Wants You To Go...."


thanks, naomi! and the words ring so true - but the trail of the heart can sometimes be very treacherous - and lonely - sometimes - but one must still to it be true!
