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 -

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 spirits of the bungalow...

in the post below - the girl in the yellow dress - i tell the story of how i came about being in my little 20's bungalow that i had fallen in love with and ultimately bought - and i mention that there were a number of inexplicable incidents while i lived there that happened to me and to my guests -

aside from the girl in the yellow dress, there were times when i, and/or others, were sure that someone else [in spirit form] was in the house, most often watching us, touching us, or walking past us - and most of these incidents took place in the same part of the house, the part directly involving the square hallway area where the closet/stairwell was, and the kitchen sink area which was visible from that hallway area -

for example, many times as i stood at the sink in the kitchen, i would "feel" someone behind me or beside me right outside the kitchen doorway and i would turn around fully expecting to see someone there even though i knew i was home alone - this same thing happened to my son - stephen is a burly biker boy type who is physically afraid of no one - however, when he would come visit, he never wanted to go into the kitchen for any length of time - for any reason - finally, i asked him what that was all about and he admitted that everytime he went to the sink area, he felt someone watching him and that he had felt someone walk past him with the air getting colder -

another time, a year or so before or after the incident above, when my son and his wife were visiting, i came home from work to find his wife sitting outside on the garage steps - i said hello and laughed and asked why she was outside in the heat - summers there were hot humid and hotter - and not inside in the cool air - she said that she'd been sitting there since noon and would not go back into the house until i got home - that she had been washing dishes and someone walked up behind her and tapped her on the shoulder and the room air had become frigid - she screamed and ran out of the house and was still sitting outside when i got home four hours later -

when my youngest daughter and her finance came to visit from the east coast, they had the guest room right off the downstairs hallway - now, i had not ever discussed these ongoing "oddities" with her or with him - i may have mentioned the girl in the yellow dress but not anything else and i had not mentioned the girl to her fiance at all - in any event, i awoke in the night to go into the kitchen and found mike sitting at my dining room table - i was more than a little surprised and asked him why he was there in the middle of the night - he responded that he could not sleep in the guest room - that there was "just something about the room" that he was frightening and unsettling - and, sure enough, he did not sleep in that room for the entire time they were there -

another daughter and a friend drove down from dc for a visit and i put them in the guest room also - and again, just as before, in the morning i found this friend asleep on the sofa - when asked about it, he said that there was something or someone in the guest room and he could not sleep there -

often times, from my room, i saw shadowy figures in the hallway area outside my door - and i experienced the thing of someone being behind me or watching me in the kitchen - but i never felt fear - it was just a bit disconcerting but not frightening - i mean, i just took it for granted after it happened a couple of times -

I wish I understood the why of it better. Ghosts have frightened me, yet they have never done anything to cause my fear. Certainly I have met much more frightening beings in the flesh. Thanks for the tale.
