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

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]

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
where
we can dance our clumsy dance
and
sing our sorrowful song -
but
in this dance or in this song
there are fulfilled
the most ancient rites
of our conscience
in the awareness of
being human
and
of believing in
a common destiny.”

More Neruda. I'm totally hooked. I don't know much about Neruda's life, but the man certainly wrote from the inside of his soul.
