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]

hovering with density and luminosity of mist...

In the ancient world, people placed heavy stones 
on the graves of the dead so 
their souls would not wander and inflict the living. 
I always thought this was simply 
the practice of superstitious and primitive people.

But I was about to learn that 
the dead can hover
on the edge of our vision 
with the density and luminosity of mist
and their claim on the earth can be 
as legitimate and tenacious as our own.

- this is one of my favorite quotes from this film which is set in southern louisiana, a place near and dear to my own heart - and but one of several issues that it forces the viewer to contemplate -

My son was in this movie and I went with him to a few of the movie shoots. It was filmed all around here, so I am very familiar with it. Have a splendid Sunday, cher!

Nancy said...

Headed for Netflix now! If it has Tommy Lee and Marguerite's son - well I'm not going to miss it.

I'm going to have to look for this film...love the quote. And the rock idea. Also read of your recent sighting experience over at the MacGregor's place...totally freaking amazing.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
love and hugs....

My husband loves Burke's Dave Robicheaux character. He liked the film allot too.
and the dead certainly do hover...
as least some do.

Tommy Lee Jones? I am THERE! Sigh.He only gets better with age. What is it about a man who isn't traditionally handsome or who doesn't have beautiful features, but whose 'energy surround' is so compelling and magnetic that you want to crawl inside his skin? I get that sense from TLJ. The man, not the actor. But I MUST see this film for its content, as well.
Can't wait.
