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]

 thoughts of you
upon my skin
take me back
where it all begins
treadin’ dark waters
in the night
can’t wash you
outta my sight
like cerulean
blue caprice
keep floatin’
to the top
when will it
ever stop
but as the river flows
round the bend
love like ours
don’t ever end
thoughts of you now
under my skin
leavin' my heart never to mend

hard to get those thoughts out of our minds, isn't it?
Under my skin...that's a good image. That's how those thoughts feel, they invade every part of us

linda said...

You're not only missed, Gypsy, we need your words in book form.

A lovely more poetic way of saying 'I've got you under my skin.'

So wonderfully written. Your soul reaches out but something's missing, Gitane de mon coeur.

Tu n'es plus la même… quelque chose s'est brisé. On dirait que tu as perdu foi en toi-même, la tristesse te guette…

What happened, la Gitane ? I'm afraid, la Gitane, I'm afraid for you.

All this time I had not forgotten about you. But you now seem to live far far North, sometimes as cold as… I'm afraid for you.

But who are you, la Gitane, who are you really now?


my dear roger - your caring words always strike such a chord in my own heart - you somehow seem to see so much more than i thought was shown - and i am grateful for your vision and kind kind words - not to worry - summer will soon be here and so will i all be back - just a bit sidetracked with other things for a while - it's still cold here - a chilly wet and windy day out even the last day of march - but i wait for summer and it's magnificent heat to warm the soul - thank you for your note - you have been sorely missed here -
