What Is A Gypsy Life?

The title of my blog comes from the Lady Gaga song “Gypsy”, and my self-appointed anthem for my life.

The song is about love and discovery and travel. It seems to fit perfectly into the model of the life I want to lead.

So what is a ‘gypsy life’?

It’s a life with no strings. It’s constant movement. It’s about valuing experiences over possessions. A gypsy carries only memories. It’s a free life, a wild life. It’s lonely and hard, but valuable.

So in the lovely words of Lady Gaga:

So I just packed my baggage and
Said goodbye to family and friends
And took the road to nowhere on my own

Like Dorothy on a yellow brick
Hope my ruby shoes get us there quick
‘Cause I left everyone I love at home

And I don’t wanna be alone forever
But I can be tonight
I don’t wanna be alone forever
But I love gypsy life
I don’t wanna be alone forever
Maybe we can see world together
I don’t wanna be alone forever
But I can be tonight, tonight

‘Cause I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m
A gypsy, gypsy, gypsy, I’m
I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m
A gypsy, gypsy, gypsy, I’m
I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m
A gypsy, gypsy, gypsy, I’m
I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m
A gypsy, gypsy, gypsy, I’m
