be born among the gypsies…

and so it is, as the magnificent pearl s buck directs, that i chose to be born among the gypsies – to the gypsy spirit of my wayfaring father lived happily in the moment never worrying about the yesterdays or the tomorrows – cherishing each single moment as if it were the first and the last – his wandering spirit giving rise to a lifetime of travel criss-crossing this beautiful country – all of which leads to my own nomadic perspective as we journey through this life and all those others here there and yon on roads less traveled – i hope you enjoy my musings along the way –

 the gypsy weeps

her eyes in midnight velvet

black mane tamed by no man yet

soft breasts of alabaster silk

fair skin like creamy milk

her hair spread like raven wings

when she speaks the gods do sing

lips all pouty and shimmering wet

she lives and loves without regret

spinning webs in ribbons of light

laid in shadows of darkest night

secrets hid in red red heart

yearning for a love not lived apart

wish she did with all her might

but life alone is her sad plight

and so it is in the forest deep

the heavens sleep


the gypsy weeps




 so who are you


i cannot bear the world to see

who i’m not but want to be

i’ve just been playing solitaire

to live in love i do not dare

while i profess to love another

i’ve loved another really never

i know you know it’s been a while

and i cannot resist your smile

so who are you

Since childhood, Ms. Gilstrap has had a love of words-of writing and other arts. An individualist, she chooses not to follow any pre-conceived pattern for the outlay of these words – rather, she allows them the freedom to forge their own path as they make their way from her heart to pen to paper. Her art work involves both photography and mixed media on large canvasses. She is a weekly featured poet in Yareah Magazine where her works have appeared for more than a year. Her piece The Granite God was the winning poem in Painted Bride Quarterly Sidebar #12 [2012]. Her work has been featured in performance poetry theatrical productions in Louisiana and her short story, Retribution, published in the Helicon Literary Magazine there. She and her gypsywomanworld blog are included as character/story elements in Ghost Key, the fictional work of award-winning author Trish MacGregor. Her first volume of poetry [2013], words unspoken, is available in both paperback and on kindle at amazon. She currently divides her time between her home in Louisiana and the east coast as she completes her second volume of poetry to be published in 2013.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
