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]

the natural gap...

there are no unnatural or supernatural phenomena -
only very large gaps in our knowledge of what is natural -

my sacred space...

Wakan Tanka, Great Mystery,
teach me how to trust 
my heart,
my mind,
my intuition,
my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things
so that I may enter my Sacred Space
and love beyond my fear,
and thus Walk in Balance
with the passing of each glorious Sun.

According to the Native People, the Sacred Space
is the space between exhalation and inhalation.
To Walk in Balance is to have Heaven (spirituality)
and Earth (physicality) in Harmony.

seeing the sacred shapes...

And while I stood there
I saw more than I can tell,
and I understood more than I saw;
for I was seeing in a sacred manner
the shapes of things in the spirit,
and the shape of all shapes as they must
live together like one being.

the true peace...

The first peace, which is the most important,
is that which comes within the souls of people
when they realize their relationship,
their oneness,
with the universe and all its powers,

and when they realize that 
at the center of the universe 
dwells Wakan-Taka (the Great Spirit),
and that this center is really everywhere, 
it is within each of us.

This is the real peace, 
and the others are but reflections of this.
The second peace is that which is made between two individuals,
and the third is that which is made between two nations.

But above all you should understand 
that there can never be peace 
between nations until there is 
known that true peace,
which, as I have often said, 
is within the souls of men.

earth, teach me...

Earth teach me quiet ~ as the grasses are still with new light.
Earth teach me suffering ~ as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility ~ as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Earth teach me caring ~ as mothers nurture their young.
Earth teach me courage ~ as the tree that stands alone.
Earth teach me limitation ~ as the ant that crawls on the ground.
Earth teach me freedom ~ as the eagle that soars in the sky.
Earth teach me acceptance ~ as the leaves that die each fall.
Earth teach me renewal ~ as the seed that rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself ~ as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness ~ as dry fields weep with rain.

to SEA the hand...

It is a curious situation that 
the sea,
from which life first arose, 
should now
be threatened
by the
activities of 
one form
of that

what is man without the beasts?

what is man without the beasts? 

if all the beasts were gone,
man would die from a 
great loneliness of spirit -
for whatever happens 
to the beasts, soon 
happens to man -

all things are connected

they come...

they come
their hearts upon the drum
it is not done

they come from another place
another time
from the dark recesses
of our mind
they speak in voices
still unknown
until our sins we atone
and then the lion upon the throne
the way to life we’ll be shown

they come

you deserve...

You can search throughout 
the entire universe 
for someone 
who is more deserving 
of your love and affection 
than you are yourself, 
and that person 
is not to be found anywhere-
as much as anybody
in the entire universe

to voyage through time...

one glance
at a book
and you hear
the voice of another person -
perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years -
to read is
to voyage
through time

the stillness...

to the mind that is still

the voyage...

the real voyage of discovery 
consists not in seeking new lands
but in seeing with new eyes...

the darkening...

High on her speculative tower
Stood Science waiting for the hour
When Sol was destined to endure
That darkening of his radiant face
Which Superstition strove to chase,
Erewhile, with rites impure.

the vision...

for i dipped into the future
far as the human eye could see
saw the vision of the world
and all the wonder
that would be

the chance...

We stand now where two roads diverge. 
But unlike the roads in Robert Frost's 
familiar poem, they are not equally fair. 
The road we have long been traveling 
is deceptively easy, a smooth superhighway 
on which we progress with great speed,
but at its end lies disaster. 

The other fork of the road -- 
the one less traveled by -- 
offers our last, 
our only chance 
to reach a destination 
that assures 
the preservation 
of the earth

the light over the gulf of darkness...

...and our small planet at this moment, here we face a critical branch point in history, what we do with our world, right now, will propagate down through the centuries and powerfully affect the destiny of our descendants, it is well within our power to destroy our civilization and perhaps our species as well.

If we capitulate to superstition or greed or stupidity we could plunge our world into a time of darkness deeper than the time between the collapse of classical civilisation and the Italian Renaissance. 

But we are also capable of using our compassion and our intelligence, our technology and our wealth to make an abundant and meaningful life for every inhabitant of this planet.
