Dreaming of a Gypsy Life

Life has been stressful recently. Lack of bountiful income opportunities, health issues with aging parents, as well as a nonresponsive computer, too many weather disasters affecting friends all over the world… gloom and doom wherever one turns. I needed to get back to nature and find a way to look for positives in my life.  It was time to go for a walk in the woods!

As I was strolling I came across an abandoned covered wagon.

I began to think that I could climb on board and dream up a new life for myself,
one with less stress, fewer obligations, maybe even more fun?
It was time to take a deep breath, relax and dream.

I let my mind float away.   I began having Gypsy Dreams.
The forest I was in was filled with magic.

The covered wagon was now a proper Gypsy wagon  –

     just as I had dreamt about.

I found myself sitting on the wagon deck with an invitation in my hand.

I thought I was hearing music.

It was getting louder.

I had best get dressed in something more festive!

Can’t forget the striped stockings!   The woods were filling up with colors and laughter and excitement.

It was turning ino a grand Gypsy Party!

 And what is a Gypsy Gathering without Fortune Tellers?

    I have heard it told that looking into one’s future is a power passed along with Gypsy blood.  Things have been so crazy in my life, dare I look to the future? Did I really want to know?

Perhaps if I chose my reader carefully… looked for a kindly soul…

(I  kept searching)  

A good way to get to know people, ask questions and find what you seek is around a campfire. 
I needed to find the campfire.  

They were just beginning to light one.                            Where is the wood?
I was about to witness more of the Gypsy magical powers.

I can not give away all of the secrets I learned.

Perhaps if you visit me again for a Practical Magic Party, or  A Fanciful Twist’s Halloween Bash  you will learn more?
Kindly leave news of other magical parties in the comments section.

I did find my fortune teller and had a look into my future.

Rev Up Your Summer Reading

I found a new blog today, a woman who teaches 4th and 5th graders with hearing loss.  It must be hard to keep their attention, as any kids that age.
Confessions of an Untenured Teacher

She shared with her readers a longer version of this great remix about reading performed by the Ocoee Middle School (don’t know where they are located) based on the Black Eyed Peas song and the grand Oprah extravaganza.

The version I am sharing only gives you a taste, but it is something I think needs to be shared.

Be sure you and your kids keep reading this summer.
