So, the main part of being a Gypset (or Gypsetter) is being an artist. they other part is wandering about, traveling, and dreaming...
Well, I've had a major mix of that happening in my life. Ever since I'd started applying the principles of Dao De Jing (Tao Te Ching) to my life since last year, I've been incredibly busy! I've been heavily into film-making including animation and motion graphics. You can actually see this applied in some of my films: Light Journal Film, and Smattering Thoughts Also Flow. Dao De Jing predates physics & psychology as a field of study and doesn't require a theology.
I'm still technically living within the poor class or poverty in the USA, but a number of circumstances brought me very rewarding experiences. Many of my wishes came true.
I had been wanting a French Press (coffee maker) for a few years. Well, my spouse was graduating this year from UMASS Boston with a BA in Art from the College of Liberal Arts. So, I helped him to get a large grant scholarship to travel to Japan, and YES he got it. Even tho' it was for him, I largely benefited from it myself. No I did not go to Japan with him because my daughter was still in school graduating from Middle School. But, I ended up with some cash and bought a French Press at Marshall's which is down the street from me.
Also, right before Mr. Wang left for Japan, an older gentleman crashed into our minivan and totaled it the day before he left for Japan. This had me driving rentals, and eventually we got a new car, and I got chiropractic care paid for due to injury.
Mr. Wang also got a ticket to fly back to China, from Japan, from his sister and when he came back I got quite a lot of gifts.
Also, my father wanted to spend time with myself and my daughter, and he & my brother got us Amtrack tickets, and we came down to Philadelphia where my father now lives with my brother. My father, brother, and my brother's girl friend were so incredibly generous to us, it's mind blowing! I picked beans in the garden, went swimming, went shopping, and worked on drilling my boho pewter pot project.
I also drove everyone to NJ from PA and we visited old spots like Rancocas Woods, and The Beach.
