friday five

My life would not be the same without this...

1. song/movie/book:
song - anything by leonard cohen....his lyrics and poetry inspire and depress me ;)
book - six centuries of great poetry
movie - don't laugh... the entire lonesome dove series - not the tv show. lonesome dove, streets of laredo, dead man's walk, return to lonesome dove. they are my escape...i will curl up on the couch and watch all of them back to back. :)

2. person:
my father, not only did he help to make me, but all my life i aspire to be as good a person as he was

3. place:
california and india and new orleans - ok if i have to choose, it is california. that's where i was when i got pregnant with the greatest joy in my life, my son (notcrazy)

4. event:

5. self indulgence:
cigarettes.....my life would probably be much better without them!


don't fear death
melissa muses (or maia, you choose)


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.
