the gypsies' journey...

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 - following the path of the sun and the trail of the stars to worlds known and unknown from yesterday and today into tomorrow -

this is a written and visual journal of my own travels - imagined and/or real -
imagined and/or real - a STREAMOFCONSCIOUSNESS telling of my own personal thoughts feelings experiences - interspersed with words and images of others - with things defined by most as PARAnormal which - for me - all my life - have been PERFECTLYnormal -

SO come along with me and we'll dance among the stars under the sun and over the moon - we'll share our stories around the campfire - together -


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]

how do i know?



Friday, December 25, 2009


this is a little "NOTE FROM THE UNIVERSE" that i received today from and one which i think rightfully belongs to us all, individually and collectively - and so, here is my message to you forwarded by way of THE UNIVERSE:

If it's not yet obvious to you, the real reason for this, and all seasons, is you.  A more perfect child of the Universe has never lived. Until now, only celebrations cloaked in myth and mystery could hint at your divine heritage and sacred destiny. You are life's prayer of becoming and its answer. The first light at the dawn of eternity, drawn from the ether, so that I might know my own depth, discover new heights, and revel in seas of blessed emotion.

A pioneer into illusion, an adventurer into the unknown, and a lifter of veils. Courageous, heroic, and exalted by legions in the unseen.

To give beyond reason, to care beyond hope, to love without limit; to reach, stretch, and dream, in spite of your fears. These are the hallmarks of divinity - traits of the immortal - your badges of honor. May you wear them with a pride as great as the immeasurable pride we feel for you.

Your light has illuminated darkened paths, your gaze has lifted broken spirits, and already your life has changed the course of history.

This is the time of year we celebrate.

Bowing before Greatness,
    The Universe

dear friends -

just to let you know, as my little campfires in blogland bear witness, the past week or so has found me distracted and sidetracked with the ups and downs of familial and other issues which have taken me from my usual time and energies on my own blogs and those of dear friends such as you -  in addition, i'm working on a couple of LARGE art pieces with imminent deadlines -

so please forgive my seemingly "irreverent" attention here and know that my lack of regular postings and comments in no way reflects anything except that which it is - peripheral things to which i must attend for a couple of weeks -

but i'll be back and forth as i can so please check over at my places at your leisure, as i, of course, will yours!  and, as always, i'll be thinking of you and yours with much affection - jenean

it's all up to you...

By choosing your thoughts,
and by selecting
which emotional currents
you will release
and which you will reinforce,
you determine
the quality of your Light.
You determine
the effects that
you will have upon others,
and the nature
of the experiences
of your life.

the freeing of ourSELVES...

Our task must be to 
free ourselves by 
widening our 
circle of compassion 
to embrace 
all living creatures 
and the 
whole of nature

the eternal soul...

That which is part of
our souls is eternal. . . 
Those lives are countless
but the soul or spirit 
that animates us throughout 
these myriads of existences 
is the same; and though 
"the book and volume" 
of the physical brain 
may forget events 
within the scope of one 
terrestrial life, the bulk of 
collective recollections 
can never desert the 
divine soul within us. 
Its whispers may be too soft, 
the sound of its words 
too far off the plane 
perceived by our physical senses;
yet the shadow of events that were
just as much as the shadow 
of the events that are to come,
is within its perceptive powers
and is ever present before 
its mind's eye." —

the spirit prevails...

I believe that man 
will not merely endure
He will prevail. 
He is immortal
not because he alone 
among creatures has 
an inexhaustible voice, 
but because 
he has a soul
a spirit capable 
of compassion 
and sacrifice 
and endurance.

the greatest gift...

The greatest gift 
that you could ever give 
to another is 
your own happiness
for when you are in 
a state of joy, happiness
or appreciation, 
you are fully connected
to the Stream of 
pure, positive Source Energy 
that is truly who you are
And when you are 
in that state of connection, 
anything or anyone 
that you are holding 
as your object of attention 
benefits from your attention.

the light of darkness...

If the whole universe has no meaning,
we should never have found out
that it has no meaning
just as, if there were no light
in the universe
and therefore
no creatures with eyes,
we should never know it was dark.
Dark would be without meaning.”

your choice...

each time you choose to do something
no matter how inconsequential it may seem...
you are creating an alternative reality
or parallel universe - and...the thing
that you did not choose is also happening
on some other place of existence...

OUT of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll

I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

the gypsy...

she has traveled
the sands of time
touching upon
earth again and again
she has roamed
the heavens and the skies
touching stars and galaxies
she has soared
past the moon and
over the sun
touching gently
the faces of the gods
has been
will be

i exist...

I existed from 
all eternity 
and, behold,
I am here;
and I shall exist 
till the end of time,
for my being has no end.

life is...

Life is the fire 
that burns and 
the sun that gives light. 
Life is the wind 
and the rain and
the thunder in the sky. 
Life is matter 
and is earth
what is and 
what is not
and what beyond 
is in Eternity.

the soul of the fearless warrior...

the celts were
fearless warriors 
because they wish to inculcate 
this as one of their leading tenets, 
that souls
do not become 
but pass after death 
from one body to another...

shine your light...

Our deepest fear is not 
that we are inadequate. 
Our deepest fear is that we are 
powerful beyond measure
It is our light, not our darkness, 
that most frightens us...
We are all meant to shine as children do...
it is in everyone.
And as we let our own lights shine
we unconsciously give other people 
permission to do the same
As we are liberated from our own fear
our presence automatically liberates others.

the butterfly of peace...

It is not all of life to live,
nor yet all of death to die.
For life and death are one,
and only those 

who will consider
the experience as one
may come to

understand or

what peace
indeed means.

gypsy's brew is good for you - 
so sit a spell - let your spirits jell
and drink a lot from my little pot!!!
and while you're here,
take a stroll through a bit of 
surrealestate in shreveport!!!!


under the light of a full moon, the bride can still be seen on the upper tower platform searching the countryside, watching, waiting, yearning for her own true love - but, alas, he does not come - her heart, year after year, continues to break - so it is said - over 100 moons ago, there was a wealth plantation owner in taylortown whose beautiful daughter was bethrothed to a handsome young man who was the love of her life - the father was so thrilled for his daughter’s happpiness that he built a beautiful church just for the ceremony to be held - but, sadly, on the date of her marriage, the beautiful bride waited and waited - but for naught - her handsome groom never came - the young bride, heartbroken, day after day night after night, stood in the bell tower of her church looking for her betrothed, waiting for him to return and be her husband - but it was not to be - and she died of a broken heart - her father, so distraught over the death of his beautiful daughter, set the church on fire, burning it to the ground - however, the bell tower remained and he dedicated it to the memory of his loving daughter - where she remains to this day, watching, waiting, hoping....

At 725 austin place sits the logan mansion, built in 1897 by LR Logan, a beer and ice manufacturer - it is a queen anne victorian house designed by architect nathaniel sykes allen -also over 100 years ago, in 1908, there lived across the street from the mansion a little girl - this beautiful little girl, on a visit to the mansion, fell to her death from the top window of the house - she remains there today where she is frequently seen in the window from whence she fell so many moons ago - she has also been seen, after midnight, playing in the front yard of the mansion - in the 1980's a radio station occupied the house and there were repeated reportings of unexplained activities like the lights going off and on and window shades going up and down by themselves - at one time, the station operator challenged the entities to “show their stuff” and the lights blinked off and on, the window shades rolled up and down and the radio station went off the air - teams of professional paranormal experts have more recently investigated and obtained positive results in the mansion -

byrd high school is the school attended by my children - it’s on line avenue, a main north/south thoroughfare in shreveport - the school was built in 1925 and had a swimming pool back in those days - however, the pool was later closed when a female student drowned in it - a dance studio was then built above it - then, years later, in the catacombs of the school, a junior rotc instructor shot himself to death there and his spirit continues to haunt the school to this day -

see you later, little children.....

she sleeps...she dreams...

she sleeps she dreams
fluttering floating flying
into the stars and far beyond

her dreams not what they seem
sliding sailing soaring science defying
she alone her ship did conn

into the heavens did she beam
living loving living again still undying
this she did and did au fond

she sleeps she dreams
all within her lives’ grand scheme

neruda's enchanted place...

“I believe that
poetry is an action,
ephemeral or solemn,
in which there
enter as equal partners
solitude and solidarity,
emotion and action,
the nearness to oneself,
the nearness to mankind
and to
the secret manifestations of nature.
And no less strongly I think
that all this is sustained...
by an ever-wider
sense of community,
by an effort which will
forever bring together
the reality and the dreams
in us
because it is precisely
in this way that poetry
unites and mingles them....
“All paths lead to the same goal:
to convey to others
what we are.
And we must pass through
solitude and difficulty,
isolation and silence
in order to reach forth to
the enchanted place
we can dance our clumsy dance
sing our sorrowful song -
in this dance or in this song
there are fulfilled
the most ancient rites
of our conscience
in the awareness of
being human
of believing in
a common destiny.”

all hallows of the cosmos...

Have you ever heard 
the wind go "Yooooo"?
'Tis a pitiful sound to hear!
It seems to chill you 

through and through
With a strange and speechless fear.
'Tis the voice of the night that broods outside
When folk should be asleep,
And many and many's the time I've cried
To the darkness brooding far and wide Over the land and the deep:
"Whom do you want, O lonely night,
That you wail the long hours through?"
And the night would say in its ghostly way:
"Yoooooooo! Yoooooooo! Yoooooooo!"

gather yourSELVES...

this is the hour...  And there are things to be considered...

...there is a river flowing now very fast.  It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.

And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.  

The time of the ONE WOLF is over. 

Gather yourSELVES! 

Banish the word 'struggle' from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

are the ones
we've been waiting for.
