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 -

THE GYPSYWOMANWORLD

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]

BUTTERFLIES AND TOKENS...



late yesterday afternoon my son in texas called to say that the weirdest thing had been happening to him for some time - he is being followed by butterflies - everywhere - wherever he goes butterflies follow him - it doesn't matter if he has just bathed and changed clothes or has been outdoors all day or not at all - the butterflies simply follow him around - while he was talking, someone took photos of several of them - the three here are each a different color - there is a large purple and a large yellow and beneath and to the left of the yellow one is a smaller black butterfly - this morning when i opened my gypsywomanworld blog, there was a new follower to the blog - her icon is that of a BUTTERFLY -

from ANIMAL TOTEMS by TRISH MACGREGOR [and Millie Gemondo], we find that butterflies represent TRANSFORMATION, METAMORPHOSIS, FERTILITY and SOARING - the significance of the butterfly overall is that it is "time to release your old self and move into a new chapter of your life." - the significance in terms of family is perhaps "...a new child...but...whatever the change, it's important that you embrace it..." Spirituality and butterflies indicate that "you're on a new path now...inner guidance and intuition exceptionally strong...go within."

- all of this fits so well into place with stephen's life of late - very recently, he re-united with his oldest daughter from whom he had been separated for nearly twenty years - he says everyday that "his life has been totally changed" - that he now has "purpose and meaning to his life" - that "every day is a wonderful day - a blessing" -

and so, we see, that it is true - the story of the BUTTERFLY - the beautiful little winged angel who brings "transformation, metamorphosis, and SOARING"...INTO OUR LIVES!

Oh I can just see it! all these butterflies gathering around..almost like a celebration of change! I wonder if the energy around the person attracts them..they connect with him because he for a time is just like them! great post!

What a beautiful and touching story! I love butterflies. There doesn't seem to be so many of them, as there were when I was a girl.

how lovely to be followed by butterflies...most definitely his totem, I would say, at least for right now!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

well, hello, watcher - well, it's certainly something to behold i'm sure - i've always loved butterflies - but don't we all? and i've not been fortunate to have any follow me along, either! thanks much for making your way over :)

GYPSYWOMAN said...

you know, willow, i so agree - maybe it's because society has so enlarged and trespassed so much into the natural world - we are losing so many things! good to see you over here again - thanks for coming by - and do come again!
