Gypsy Summer

The Wanderlust has lured me to the seven lonely seas,
Has dumped me on the tailing-piles of dearth;
The Wanderlust has haled me from the morris chairs of ease,
Has hurled me to the ends of all the earth.

-Robert William Service

It's the middle of summer and that urge is kicking in to hit the road and move.

...and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn...

Behind us lay the whole of America and everything Dean and I had previously known about life, and life on the road. We had finally found the magic land at the end of the road and we never dreamed the extent of the magic.

The all-but-fluid silence, -- yet the longing grows and grows,
And I've got to glut the Wanderlust again.

-Robert William Service


  1. It's like a whole new blog...

  2. Can I add my Heath Preheim gypsy cat to the mix?
