GYPSIES


There is definitely a bit of gypsy running through my veins, either from the Irish or Hungarian (or both) sides. When not physically travelling, I feel a great need to always be learning, reading, talking of new things to learn, see and do.

I think Gypsies are just attuned to the fact that earth isn't our final resting place, and so they spend their lives in constant pilgrimage.

Which is why THIS meeting of the Pope and Gypsy priests, deacons and religious is so cool.

As a bonus, here's a beautiful story about Madonna and the Gypsy.

I think that you have a romantic view of gypsies. The ones I worked with were nothing but cooks, theives and con artists. They had no learning and had no respect for anything or anyone. Not even the sisters who tried so hard to help them.

Yes and bad ones.

Oh--the gitanos! How we miss them! Anon is right though--you do have a romanticized view...you know, "los gitanos, they will steal your money." But it's worth it.
