Gypsy Soul

In Spain at the Monestario De Piedra after traveling for 27 hours

I learned when I went to Spain that I have a Gypsy Soul. I am never happier that when I am going somewhere. Some people live their whole lives and never leave the town they were born in. Pascual did a search in Spain on my family name... My great Grandmother's name is Montoya. That is a gypsy name in Spain. So much so that almost all people with that name in Spain are of gypsy origin. So... there is a reason why I am drawn to gypsies, and flamenco dancing and violin and tambourine... It is the remnants of the gypsy in my soul yearning to travel, and see what is over the next hill. I was feeling sorry for myself because I haven't traveled much in the past year. Then I started thinking of all the places I HAVE been. I have been to some incredible places and seen some amazing sights. When I started writing all the places down where I have been, I was amazed at how many there actually were.

Also, I found this band called Gypsy Soul. You can download their music on i tunes. A celtic/new age type band. The lady has an amazing voice. One More Day is my favorite one. She sings about where do you shine in your life. Go buy the CD... I promise you will like it. I have been thinking about shining. Where do I shine in my life? I think I will explore that in my next 100 list tomorrow...
