I’m thinking about all the things
I’d like to do in my life
I’m a dreamer, a distant dreamer
dreaming far away from today
I’m a dreamer, a distant dreamer
Dreaming far away from today
Yeah, I’m a dreamer…
I adore Duffy…to listen to her song (my theme song..hee, hee) just click on the title:
Hello everyone, seems a long time..eh? I hope things have been pleasant for all of you since our last chat. Hmmm…my goodness, was that back on December 23??? :O My, my..how time is slipping away. Now I am officially a year older, and we’ve said goodbye to 2008. 2009 is finally here, and for the first time in many years, no new year resolutions for me.
no resolutions, but reflections
I found this quote and photo a good fit with my thoughts today. This photo has been here before on “falling into the sky”, a post I wrote way back when I was pretty much alone here on gypsy-heart. So here it is again, full circle.
When I started this blog I had no idea where it would go, and it has been a pleasant surprise. Meeting all you was the best surprise of all, and I am grateful for the whole experience. We’ve shared a lot, you’ve been here through my many moods. Happy, sad, silly, frustrated, ecstatic, … you endured my dreams and my drama . You have often touched my heart, taught me lessons, encouraged and inspired me, consoled me, and made me laugh! All at times when I needed it! You were…
Divinely sent, I do believe. :)
Of course, I have tried to visit all of you..wanting to read every post, see every image, and leave a word or two. I’ve tried to respond to all the sweet and thoughtful emails too. Alas, over the year and a half our “talking circle” has grown, and it has become more and more of a challenge for me to keep up. Some of you may remember a few posts I did about feeling pressure about it all.
and so ……
This year you will see less of me. I will post and visit when I can, but for the most part..only quick little posts. Just to share a quote, new paintings, a photo, or a few words. I’ll drop by your sites from time to time to say hello. At times I may just check on you without saying a word, but you will know I’ve been there. I know what you are thinking..gypsy-he♥rt not saying a word…NO WAY! eh, eh, eh Well, we shall see won’t we? :)
I am aware in the blog society one should be consistent, but what will be, will be. I just know that I am in dire need of life beyond the technical world. Often I found myself struggling for something to say…just “talking to be talking” and that was of no benefit to you or me. Haven’t I confessed many, many times (it’s always been at the top, in my heading) …
~I paint, what I struggle to say~
Alas, dear Hearts, for months my hermit world, of woods and river, has been beckoning my return. That is where I feed my soul. ‘Tis where matters of heart and dreams are revealed to me so my brushes and paints can capture them on canvas.
I’ll be in and around our little blog circle… so this is not goodbye, only little interludes. I hope you aren’t too disappointed in me. I cannot help it for I have always been a distant dreamer…it’s how I survive. :)
Never forget that we are all reflections of one another and what I see is your…
Love and Light
Don’t forget to
Ps I am always just a click away…my email door is always open!
