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]

the universe of i...

i stand at the seashore alone and start to think
there are the rushing waves
mountains of molecules each stupidly minding its own business
trillions apart
yet forming white surf in unison
ages on ages
before any eyes could see
year after year
thunderously pounding the shore as now
for whom - for what?
on a dead planet with no life to entertain
never at rest
tortured by energy
wasted prodigiously by the sun
poured into space
a mite makes the sea roar
deep in the sea
all molecules repeat
the patterns of
one another till complex new ones are formed
they make others like themselves
and a new dance starts
growing in size and complexity
living things - masses of atoms - DNA - protein
dancing a pattern ever more intricate
out of the cradle onto the dry land
here it is standing
atoms with consciousness
matter with curiosity
stands at the sea
wonders at wondering
a universe of atoms

I really like this! I like all of your posts on this site, but this one amplifies a song I like, "The Riddle" by Five For Fighting.

"there's a reason for the world, you and I"

Really good, fantastic words and thoughts, and the photograph is perfect. I will copy for you another poem:

You begin this way,
This is your hand,
this is your eye,
That is a fish, blue and flat
on the paper, almost
the shape of an eye.
This is your mouth, this is an O
or a moon, which ever
You like. This is yellow
outside the window
is the rain, green
because it is summer, and beyond that
the trees and then the world,
which is round and has only
the color of these nine crayons.
Margaret Atwood

ladies above - please forgive the delay in responding and thanking you for such wonderful comment which truly really do "make my days" - but i've been fighting a relentless bug of some sort that seems to have invaded by head [sinuses, more specifically] and who has been giving it more than a diligent fight - however, this bug is just not enough for this relentless wild woman so, notwithstanding the time frame in doing so, i am gradually overtaking HIM [and i KNOW it's a MALE bug! i can just TELL!] -

all of which means that i've been a bit distracted this week with an hour up and then an hour down and another hour up i've been a little dis-connected here -

again, though thank you for such individualized thoughtful comments -

have a wonderful day, each of you!

and please come again soon!


celeste maia - thank you so much for leaving the beautiful verse, as well - words are such sweet things, are they not?


and terripatrick - thank you for the very nice mention over at your place - and i have to remember to look up the song you mention - can't quite place it - thanks again! and come back soon!
