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]

michaelangelo...kitty clairvoyance?

recently i posted something about several experiences i'd had with deer a year or so ago - during a time when i was searching for answers and asking for signs - and the deer came to me - which reminded me of my little kitten named michaelangelo - michaelangelo was a beautiful long-haired baby when he came to live with me and my children many moons ago - he had that kind of gruffy funky long hair of many colors but was mostly dark gray with shades of this and that throughout - he looked a lot like a maine coon cat - absolutely gorgeous - in any event, he was a tiny thing when he first came home to us - but from the beginning, very bright and so so loving - this was back in the days when my kids were all home and i was in college trying to make my way through -

we lived in a little apartment right off campus - beside the front door there was a large picture window with draperies - the window was so close to the door that the drapes actually at times would almost touch the door knob - in any event, michaelangelo was doted on as the "youngest child" by all of us - and he returned the love to us - my daily schedule was never the same - i mean, i went to school full time, i worked two jobs, did my kids to and from school and their activities, etc, so there was little regularity - at home, my parking place was right at the front door of the apartment - you know the kind, you step out of your car, go 5 paces and you're inside your apartment -

well, little michaelangelo, in a very short time, figured out exactly when i was making my way home each day - and about the time i was pulling into the complex property, he would bounce over to the front window, claw his way up the thick drapes, hang onto the drapes and swing himself onto the window ledge by the front door and sit looking out the window for me - when he saw my car pull up, he would reach out and put his little paw on the door knob -

my kids were totally beside themselves - the oldest was a teenager and the youngest about five years old - they loved to watch him do it and never tired of telling this story - we never knew just "how" michaelangelo knew when i was coming, but he did - it was just part of who he was -

- the photo is not michaelangelo, but close... -

This is the kind of story you'll find in Rupert Sheldrake's "Dogs taht know when their owners are coming home." It's a fantastic book and look into how animals "know."

Great post!

YES - I have Sheldrake's book and a beautiful story like yours about our dear departed dog's "knowing". So amazing and heart-warming!
