I Have "Gypsy" Blood

The urge, the sweet pulse and the complete urge to fly! 95 People

    The Unappeasable Urge

      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...

    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...

    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...
