The Unexpected Gypsy – Finding Home in magical Glastonbury?

1506171271121

The Unexpected Gypsy, partly an outlet for my writing, about this unexpected gypsy life I find myself living, about losing myself, & my balance, & about finding them again, about living unsettled and seeking home… I wonder then, whether I have found it? Time will tell, for sure. I can ‘t quite explain it. I can’t quite define it. I knew I would find home when I felt it. Although, I didn’t know it would take so long. On the way into Glastonbury a couple of months ago now, as I drove into the town, the song playing in my cd…

The Unexpected Gypsy – The Day I nearly fell off a cliff…

There is a new man in my life – and I think he just saved my life… Today, has been so good and so hard simultaneously. It seems that it is my current normal; to have a mixture of miracles and challenges everyday. I have talked about the unsteady relationship I am experiencing with where we are staying right now in an older post. How I find it breathtakingly beautiful (it really is!) and overwhelmingly dangerous at the same time. I have talked about our daily walks on The Great Orme here sandwiched between the wild north coast and Snowdonia…

Today ‘I’m Thinking,’… I wrote a poem! A few weeks ago. Well, the Ideas Fairy and I wrote a poem, a collaborative effort.

This is a special poem with a secret purpose, although I had no idea of this at the time of writing it. I will tell that story when I share the whole poem. I have actually made a video reading of the poem to release soon,…

I am feeling very inspired during the process of downsizing the contents of my wardrobe. This may sound like a frivilous and superficial activity, and, it may well be to someone else. But, to me, it has turned into a very long, and very important unfolding (!) and a layered progression of personal growth. And also a realisation that I have far too many skirts and not enough space to store them!

The Unexpected Gypsy… Part 1

Here I am, still living my life as a nomadic, van-dwelling, house-sitting, free-spirit even though I find it really hard a lot of the time! I am sharing here the first post of a new series for my blog, which is entitled; The Unexpected Gypsy. Most of my life is in flux. A constant state of transition, instability and flow. There is no plan. I wrote a blog post after our first year of travelling where I share about living with the ‘no-plan-plan.’ I live wild and free, from place to place with an intention on slow travel wherever possible….
