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]

the buddha moment...


Do not dwell in the past, 
do not dream of the future, 
concentrate the mind 
on the present moment.

susan - thought you might like this one! have a glorious weekend!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

wow, fabulous experience, then, spuds! and you still do tai chi? i've looked all over delaware to find a tc instructor that has trained somewhere outside of a chicken farm - but to no avail thus far - although there is a yoga studio up in dover that allegedly has a well trained instructor, or used to - well, you know, beauty being in the eye of the kung fu panda beholder and all! :)

hey lovelylinda - so sorry to just now be responding - snow and more snow and outages and cabin fever have been working rampantly for several days - but - you're so right about buddha - on both counts! hope you and yours are enjoying beautiful sunny california days!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

namaste', trish and rob!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

i think it's something we each have to work on to some degree, nancy - at least, most people i know do - and i certainly am in that category - but being aware and focused helps - funny how the things we have no control over seem to have control over us at times - like the past and the future! :)
