    Gypsy Blood, And No Transfusion

    My grandfather was carried off the boat from Hungary. That doesn't sound like a whole lot, but he and I (strangely, though, not my mother) shared a love of the outdoors and a thirst for travel. Today he's gone, and I like to imagine he's satisfied, having gone literally...

    Not Entirely Sure

    As the title suggests, I'm not entirely sure about this. But there's a lot of people on mum's side of the family who like to move around a lot, and don't like to remain settled in the same spot ... and I have that bug. Kind of odd, considering they're all from farming stock...

    Gypsy Blood

    I too feel the need to roam.  I feel a strong pull with the earth to wander and see new things.  My dad had gypsy blood too.  As a child we moved around a lot.  Just about every 2 to 3 years we would move.  Sometimes moving right back to where we had...

      Atlhough I am young and cannot afford it, my feet yearn to find new paths, to travel and see the world. I want to see things the way they are, to be a mere silent witness and a traveler who can commit the world to my heart.   My heart has always seeked from a...

    How Do You Catch A Cloud And Pin It Down??

    My family have always jested about how the "gypsy" blood has got the better of me. "Why ME?!" I would exclaim. Noone else in my family seems to have been as unsettled in their lives as I have. My dad right enough, has moved around several times... Yet not quite as much as myself...
