I have curling iron burn on my left finger & I hope it leaves a scar
My beautiful Gypsy departed this world, Into the Mystic,
at 5:20 PM Saturday night, June 28, 2020, and this world will never be the same.
To describe Gypsy, I’d need a thousand poetry books and everything you could ever learn about the Goddess Aphrodite (the muse of beauty, wine and song). But, in this moment, I’m thinking of the movie Sense and Sensibility.
It was a popular Jane Austin novel, and the movie version featured Emma Thompson (Elinor Dashwood), and Kate Winslet (Marianne Dashwood).
Elinor was the sensible one who kept her emotions in check, while Marianne was wild at heart, and let her sensuality rule her. Gypsy and I were a lot like that. You might not believe this, but I was the sensible one in our relationship…and she…well…the one who lived by passion.
There’s so many things I will miss about her, in the world will never be the same, however if I have learned nothing else about the illusion of death, it’s that I believe it’s on the other side are reachable, like a radio dial, but it’s up to us to find their new frequency. Speaking of radio dial, here’s the link to some of her gorgeous music on SonicBids.
Here’s a pic of she and I, taken by Yamini Redewill, a few years ago…she and I (and all those who loved her) will always be connected.
She’s no longer confined to a body that couldn’t handle her level of aliveness, so she’s had to explode and become particles of everything, everywhere. In fact, this is one of her favorite songs, “Meet Me In the Wind.”
Those of us who knew and loved her sweet, Gypsy soul, are forever branded. And, without realizing it, the night she died, as we adorned her body in a home memorial, I curled her long, raven hair for the last time. Just as I was nearly done, contact lenses foggy from tears, I burned my left forefinger on the scalding iron. I look down and see a slight purple discoloration and smile-hoping this physical mark lasts the rest of my physical life-as a memory of my last physical moment with this faery queen, priestess, dolphin, mermaid goddess, sister friend.
I dedicate today’s show to Gypsy…and your dreams, of course!
