My name is Jeanie and I go by gypsychant or candika in my post. I have 4 children and 4 part time children who have mostly shaped who I am for the past 30 years. I have been and sometimes still am a midwife, childbirth educator, yoga instructor, house builder, owner of a children store and reggae store, mother, sister, daughter, lover and blogger. All of this does not define who I am; it just describes where I’ve been.
I have had two long relationships in my life, one started when I was in my teens and lasted in my mid twenties. The second started when I was 29 and is still on going. They have been my earthly travel/journey partners.
I love to chant and do so as often as possible; in my car with a CD, at the Bahamas in a temple, in St John under the stars.
I love the gypsy life and in the past lived it to the fullest. It seems my family is not so thrilled in that life style. My gypsy life must be mostly in writing for now.
My youngest is 17 and discovering the world around her. I will ride out her high school years with her, which has mostly been entertaining, then off to a new adventure.
I am updating this all the time. My daughter graduates next month. A new adventure is near.
