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 walk...

 totem walk me soft

take me down that  path
far from sin's own wrath

take me by the hand
lead me through the sands

take me now through time
tell me you are mine

take me by my heart
play me like mozart

totem walk me soft
fly me far aloft  

totem walk




this little piece came about as i was browsing images which i felt reflected new beginnings - when i saw this beautiful painting of emily carr i knew it was the "one" for today's post - a visual journey through this life into the next life [well, to me, anyway] - or one's journey through love - and/or both - and/or neither - it's up to you what you see and hear here - in any event, while i sat wandering through this magnificent forest, these are the words that came from the forest voices! enjoy!

Happy New Year Jenean.
I think your philosophy on life is an inspiration to us all.

May you forever watch the peach blossom glide down the mountain stream.

You are a living work of art. It is fun to see how the passion for living simply gushes from you.

Happy New Year Jean!

Hi Gypsy
I like that painting very much. Funny thing is, last Wednesday I visited the Royal Ontario Museum with my Dad and there are four HUGE totem poles there. Beautifully carved pieces from the Nisga’a and Haida peoples of Canada’s Pacific Northwest Coast.

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

Really? How cool. But in what way??? I'm lost in a forest?? No, tell me not that.


oh, no, not that, trish!!! too funny!!! ;)

i think the totems themselves - ancient spirits guides along the way -
