I could lie and tell you I’ve been on sabbatical for the last 6 or so months and that would be ‘SORTA TRUE’ but the real reasons are lack of inspiration or maybe too much inspiration and not enough desire to sit still long enough to write. I’ve spent a lot of time traveling and visiting and didn’t stop long enough where there was WIFI to post and upload even the pictures and I took a lot. I caught up on my reading,and did some exploring. I’m even learning how to read Oracle and Tarot cards. I opened a permanent flea market booth in a local vendor’s market and was just beginning to make money at it when the city decided the building was too close to the street they were widening and we lost our lease so now I’m in the process of setting up an online storefront.
It’s called The Gipsie Bodega . Please stop in and take a look – I’m working on it a little every day and despite the photos that are somehow turning sideways when I upload them is coming together -hope you are pleased, you can order through PayPal for now but in a week or so I will be taking credit cards.
Finally for those of you who actually followed my writing I will try to have something new and original ready in the next day or so. Love you all.
I got the trailer hitch on the car Wednesday and the lights are supposed to be in today. I am hoping to be back on the road by Tuesday and have actually been looking on the internet and Craigslist and have sent inquiries on about a 1/2 dozen or so – I only have $1000 dollars I can work with so I have to really look, but let me show you what I found. The wild side of me wants it so bad, I love it – The practical side is screaming “ARE YOU CRAZY!” Anyway here it is. Any thoughts or comments are welcome even if you tell me I’m bonkers.
and here’s the ad

and my inquiry
OK! The Gipsie in me needs to know is this vehicle road ready and still available? Can a single woman 65 years old who is somewhat on the wild side and just spent the entire spring and summer on the road tent camping with everything I own packed in my car actually live in it?. I just had a trailer hitch put on my 2005 Subaru Forester and can haul 2500 pounds total weight and plan on leaving St Augustine on Tuesday to get back on the road. My hope is to find something I can actually live in this winter were ever I choose to go Along the way and the idea of becoming a full time vagabond appeals to me if it is feasible. I have cash in hand if we can reach an agreement. What about tags and such and where are you located. I can be reached at this email or at ______ or on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/marty.bowman.549
“You see, in my view a writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, because everything she does is golden. In my view a writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.”
― Junot Díaz
A while back before my path curved and and began taking all sorts of twists and turns – Before I even started WordPress – I authored a webpage called A Writer Is A Writer – REGARDLESS . I am no longer actively contributing to it but it is still open and even gets a few visitors now and then. I also regularly published on Google in Gipsiecrone Musings, GAIA IS PLEADING, and The Eclectric Hodgepodge and these are still open as well.
Now a days though most of my writing endeavors are posted here on WordPress or on a page that Facebook seems to have swallowed up. This is probably just as well because lately I seem to be having a difficult time even keeping up here. This is part of the reason I have changed this page, again; I find my recent road trip and camping experiences have broadened my interests considerably and I now consider myself a photographer as well as a writer. It doesn’t matter what others think – taking mediocre photographs as well as writing sometimes good poetry does not make me any less a writer or photographer and I intend to prove it in the next day or so.
and in closing this is a sample of my photography.
