My first post by email......and one of very, very few I make private these days.....

I was concerned about a friend and wandered on over to his journal, which I had neglected as much as my own these days. What a disappointing surprise..... I’ve heard sad stories of a friend reading something about another friend via a journal rather than hearing it in person, but never imagined one of my own friends to do it. See, I am not only this person’s friend, but his boss and I had to read how much he not only dislikes his job but painful words about one of the very people he is there to care for and help. And then the cherry of an insult to me and everyone else with whom he works....
I am a whirl of emotions...pissed, hurt, sad..... But mostly disappointed and shocked.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
