TGIF #26

Gypsy Vardo

A Real Gypsy Vardo- click for more Gypsy info

A friend (Thx, CH!) sent me these lyrics by John Gorka yesterday:

You might like the gypsy life
you judge your progress by the phases of the moon
Get your compass and your sharpest knife
People love you when they know you’re leaving soon.

Which made me start thinking about the process of gypsying and being nomadic (apologies to the Rom.) And how, you can have deep affection for certain places and want to return, even if it’s not to stay.  The return path can be a spiral; you’re returning with a whole new set of experiences, that changes what you see. Hmmm… I’ll need to think further on that.

In the meantime, I’m hanging out w/my Dad & stepmom in Clovis & possibly up @ Shaver Lake, so may not post until Monday. Don’t worry- I’m in good hands ;)

Friday links for you!

    That “Shiny Suds” bit is one of the best things you’ve ever found, and that’s saying something. Enjoyed the other links too, but – “Demeter Fragrance”? Such a perverse use of one of the oldest names of the Earth Mother (from Greek, but she likely predated the arrival on Protoeuropeans in Europe). She was the mother of the furrows, the mother of grain, and you can guess how she smelled – earthy, and proud of it!. Even Shiny Suds can’t get rid of that essence!
