Who is Lucid Gypsy

Hello I’m thrilled that you have found my blog and hope that you subscribe and come back often! Feel free to tell me your thoughts about what  you read and see here because in the end I may catch on and improve as a result :-)

I’m G, a middle aged techno hen with a passion for travel, writing, reading and well, life really. I’m pretty much unstoppable, working full time, studying and crafting pretty things. I love people – even the ones I don’t like and have to stop myself talking to strangers quite often, because they probably don’t all want to speak to me. At least that’s what they think in the beginning, but its fun trying to win them over. Once I’ve got their attention, I shut up and let them talk while I soak up as much as I can.

Where does my name come from? Well I love to wander of course and I like to think I’m clear seeing. I’ve learnt a new word from my friend Frizztext in Germany, it’s scharfsinnig, one of the translations of lucid.

I’m half British, half Nigerian, Igbo Dumnonii, and I’m lucky to live in the beautiful south west of England. I try to take my camera out for walkies and sometimes get good shots but though I have a good eye I lack the technical skills. I’m a Gill you see, mistress of none – but now my good friend Sandra Connor says that I mustn’t say that anymore because I am a haiku master, thank you dear Sandra!

  3. Lovely pics and beautiful words
    Jill

  4. Hi Gilly, you have a very aesthetic blog and as usual, your writing is lovely.

  5. My husband and I were recently in your wonderful part of the world, cruising the British Isles on the Queen Mary II. The people we met were as lovely as the scenery. And your writing charmingly presents you as just such a person. :)

  6. Well G I’d have to say you are a hoot too! Thanks for stopping by my blog and “liking” one of my posts. The breakfast shot is truly a unique one even if it is not yours, and I don’t get the ping back thing yet either, LOL! Take care. Margie

  7. Hallo! Love the blog and the happy, sociable tone you’ve set with your writing. I wanted to ask you if you’d be interested in submitting something for a photo essay for our online magazine, Papercuts (which Shazaf has recently been published in). Here’s the link to the blog entry that gives more information on this: http://desiwriterslounge.net/blog/2011/11/we-want-your-photos/. It would be lovely to receive something from you. You’ve got the eye. Hope to keep coming here often :-)

    • Hi Afia, I read and shared your blog on Facebook earlier today, it’s a great read, especially as I have a real passion for all things connected with the Sub-continent. I am delighted that you enjoyed reading my blog and flattered that you think I may be able to submit something useful. My city is very ‘open’ so it will be a real challenge to come up with something, I’ll give it a good try. Desi Lounge and Papercuts are both fab!

  8. Hi Gilly thanks for dropping by my site, I appreciate it. Happy Holidays :)

  9. It has been a pleasure having you as one of my blog followers. I enjoy stopping
    by and reading your posts. I am gratfeul that you found mine because I was able
    to experience yours. I hope you continue to do greater and better things in 2012.
    May you holidays be filled with all the blessings your heart can hold.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year …
    Isadora

    • Thank you honey and believe me its a real treat for me to read you! I’m still at the stage of my writing life where I’m mystified that people want to and seem to enjoy reading anything I write so positive comments from people I’ve never met are so encouraging. I wish you peace and happiness for 2012 and that your muse continues to fill you with creativity.
      Yours Gx

  10. Gilly,
    I have nominted your nlog for the Liebster award. You can view the details

  11. Hey Gil, nice to meet you. Thank you for stopping by my blog and “liking” my post. I will subscribe to your blog and spend some time here. :)

  12. Thank you so much for your nice comment about my blog and subscribing. I like seeing photos of and learning about other cultures and travels. I’ll be back to see more of your postings!

  13. Delighted to meet you! I’m British Nigerian too! :-)

  14. HI Gilly,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and subscribing. I hope you enjoy it. I look forward to seeing your comments and suggestions.
    Huffygirl

  15. Hey Gilly, I left you a reply to your comment about my post “We Say Good-Bye To Ourselves”, And in doing so, I mentioned an musician (Brendan Perry) and song that you may like. Well here is the Youtube link….
    Hope you enjoy it….

  16. Gilly, here are 3 tracks from the band Dead Can Dance: Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. Haunting, orchestral, goth – post rock from the 80’s. Lisa has one of the most incredible voices ever. The video footage of the 2nd song “When the Carnival is Over” is wonderfully magical. I hope you enjoy all three selections. It may be a little different but the quality is unquestionable.

  17. I’ve just nominated you for the Seven x Seven Link Award!! Thanks so much for having your blog, I really appreciate it!

    • Hi Robyn-Nigerian-by-marriage! Thanks for visiting, I’ve read a few of your entries and congratulate you on the way you have handled all the challenges you have survived. I know how hard it can be to get a visa to visit Nigeria and for Nigerians to visit even family in the UK! i wish you the best of luck and a long and happy future for all of you :-)

  20. thanks for stopping by my blog and liking one of my posts. i just signed up for your blog and i noticed you received the Candle lighter Award which I created in December. Congratulations—i will add you to the dynamic list i am compiling. have a wonderful day :-)

    http://misexperienciaspersonales.wordpress.com/2012/01/17/one-lovely-blog-award/

  24. Hi Gill, thanks for the nice comment you sent me a few minutes ago :-) I subscribed to your bog so I won’t miss a bit of your postings, as I like the style pretty much. Kudos!

  25. Hi, Thank-you for ‘liking’ my poem. I’m also an aspiring writer/poet from the South West of England, and currently doing an OU course in Advanced Creative Writing. I do like your site. It’s great!
    Anne

  26. I have been enjoying your blog and so I nominated you for the Kreativ Blogger Award. It’s self-described as a bit chain letterish, but I wanted to recognize your writing. Details are here: http://postcardfiction.com/2012/01/30/98/. Happy blogging.

  27. Gilly,
    Thank you for visiting my blog. I enjoy visiting yours. Great thoughts and photos. It was nice to read that you are also going to school.
    Claudia

  29. Gilly! Hi Cee, just letting you know that I added you on my blogroll. ;)

  30. Hi, Gilly. I wanted to stop by and thank you for taking the time to view my “Down” photo and click the “like’ button. Your site is so attractive, and I especially like your “January Small Stone” page. I’ll be back.
    Blessings. Sandra

  31. Glorious photography, Gilly. Beautiful blog!

  32. Gilly,
    According to my dashboard I’m following your blog but I can’t remember the last time I recieved a notification of a post. Is anyone else having this problem?

  33. Hey Gilly, Do you live in Devon ? A whole lot of my ancestors are from Devon but I have never travelled overseas. The big old tree interested me.

  34. Hi Gilly, Interested in doing a guest blog for me this month. http://wp.me/p1PaX2-id

    Maybe about a Nigerian woman that should be celebrated? Let me know.
    Paige

  35. I was just reading your “About” page again. I’ve gotten to know so many new people in such a short time through the blogs that I like to go back after I take a breath, and let the information about them sort of “settle in.” I was touched by what you said about always wanting to talk to strangers. I am exactly the same way. I just can’t seem to keep myself from striking up conversations with people in grocery store check-out lines, restaurants, department store aisles, etc. But I’ve lived well into middle age doing that, and I can honestly say I’ve never been sorry that I live that way. I’m sure you’re not either.

  36. Hello Gilly, I just nominated you for the Sunshine Award – handle it as you like, no obligation!

  37. Hello Gillly, I read your comment on Isadora’s blog, so dropped by to have a look at yours. Love your words and pics – I lived/worked in Devon and Cornwall for many years, so your photos of the area are a ‘blast from the past’! :)

  38. Hi there Ms. Gilly Gee!
    Love the blog and the photos! I hopped on over to your Flickr stuff also – I often use fellow bloggers (and professionals’) photography on my blog as features, pics of the week or of the day…would you be alright with my using some of your flickr material for the same? Of course you would be fully credited and your website and/or blog linked. If you could let me know, that’d be great! All of my contact info’s on my blog (http://zenandgenki.com) I’m particularly taken by that red toadstool shot (SO cool! Love it!) Would have contacted you via PM, but don’t see your info here :)
    Excellent blog!
    Have a wonderful Sunday!
    anne

  39. Hi, Gilly. I have nominated you for the “Genuine Blogger” Award. I know you have received a lot of awards, but I did not see that particular award on your site. If I have missed it, I apologize. Assuming I am not mistaken, I hope you will know that my nomination is genuine (no pun intended), because I think you are truly one of the most “genuine” bloggers I’ve met on here. You will find the details on my site at this link: http://sandraconner.wordpress.com/2012/04/25/genuine-blogger-award/
    Blessings! Sandra

  40. Thanks for stopping by and taking time out to comment I really appreciate it.
    Rob

  41. Hey, Gilly. I’m writing for some information. I’m thinking about changing my blog’s theme to something more like the “Twenty-Ten,” and I noticed you are using that. My question is this: in the details about the theme, it says it allows for only two widget areas on the side bar and the rest are in the footer. But I noticed you have more than two areas with information in your sidebar. Was that the options it gave you originally, or did you have to do something special to get all those different sections to show up on the side rather than at the bottom? I’m still new enough at this I sometimes don’t understand all the terminology and functions of things. Thanks for any info you can provide. I need to find a theme that looks a little “cleaner” and allows for a little more room for the posts.

    • Oh heck I’m afraid I’m a dabbler that finds things but doesn’t remember how – I still can’t work out how to do pingbacks. I certainly didn’t have to do anything special because I wouldn’t get it.I don’t understand instructions and just try to work things out, sometimes it happens sometimes it doesn’t!It took me ages to be able to do slideshows. What I have never done though is paid for any extras on here. I’ve looked at changing themes but none seem to fit as well as this one for me and its simple to make it look quite nice. Sorry I’m not much help honey :-( But your blog does look lovely!

  42. Thank you, and I understand perfectly about finding things and getting them to work but not really knowing how or why. I’ll just do some experimenting. That’s what I had to do in the beginning. I like the over all theme I’m using okay, but the text — especially in the side widgets — is so soft, and in the same color family as the background, that it’s hard to read. And I think the two different colors and textures that make up the background take away from the content a little. Of course, I’ve had so many computer problems, some of the problem could be my very old computer and small screen. But a lot of other people still use old computers and small screens, so I’d like for it to be easy for everyone to view and read. I’ll experiment and see what happens. Thanks again.

  43. We are blessed to know you through your beautiful and inspiring posts. You have a gift to capture wonderful things through your camera and words that brings us close to the moment of wonder. Thanks.

  44. I thanks for stopping and liking my pets post.

  45. Hello Gilly! I just realized that someone else just nominated you for the award that I just nominated you for! I have chosen your blog for the Genuine Blogger Award. I guess the fact that another poster nominated you makes it pretty consistent and true! Well, keep up the great work!

    http://nando67.wordpress.com/2012/05/31/genuine-blogger-award/

  53. Jackie Paulson July 2, 2012 — 12:32 am

    Hi it’s so nice to read about You in your About page! I love crafty things too. I love to read write and do all sorts of blogging. Making new friends like YOU Gillyi. I have a reading book blog at http://getreadingnow.org too…if you like book reviews. I hope you keep stopping over my blog- I appreciate it. I am working full time as a Security Guard, and tired a lot. I am off on the weekends, so If I don’t get to comment right away I do that on the weekends now… Bless you. JACKIE~

  54. Gilly, lovely to have made the connection with you across the airwaves, so to speak. So in what part of the SW do you live? Before I ended up here in Arizona, I was living just outside Totnes in South Devon. Anyway, will be a pleasure to follow your own musings, Paul

    • Hi Paul and thanks for visiting. Totnes is one of my favourite places, have a look around here and you will find several posts about the area. I live in Exeter which I’m sure you must have visited!How on earth did you end up in Arizona? or may be you are from the States and returned. I look forward to visiting you again :-)

      • Bit of a snapshot here http://learningfromdogs.com/founding-author/

        Met Jean in Mexico when invited to spend Christmas with the sister of a long-term Californian friend. Suzann had known Jean for many years; they both rescued Mexican feral dogs. Jean and I were both born in London, 21 miles apart! I went out to Mexico with Pharaoh, my GSD, in 2008 and in February 2010 we all moved up to Payson, Arizona.

        Simple, isn’t it!

      • And a footnote to thank you for your recent decision to start following Learning from Dogs. Give Devon a hug from me!

  55. Such a fascinating and eclectic blog.

    Count me in.

    Tom

  56. Hi Gilly, Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! You have a cool blog, will be following you.

  62. Hi Gilly Gee,
    Thanks for leaving a comment on my about page…I almost never visit about pages…I guess I should…I learned some wonderful things about you!!!! It’s lovely to connect…and enjoy your camera walkies. ;)

  63. Dear Gilly, hope you’re doing fine! I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award… check out the post http://autumninbruges.wordpress.com/2012/09/26/im-walking-on-sunshine/ :)

  64. G’day Gilly I see you have quite a number of awards from other bloggers and among them is the reader appreciation award but I would also like to pass another reader appreciation award to you to let you know how much I look forward to your posts, http://pommepal.wordpress.com/

  65. Love your site! Your posts are very inviting. I feel like I’m part of what you are describing. It’s like I’m there, witnessing what you are trying to convey. Blessings

  66. I do hope that you will accept the brand new Blog of the Year 2012 Award which I have bestowed upon your blog – you can read my award ceremony post here ‘Blog of the Year Award’ http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/2012/10/24/blog-of-the-year-award/ Thank you for entertaining and informing me this year – and Congratulations!

  67. I have nominated you for the Super Sweet Blogging Award, I hope you will accept http://rainbowbakery.wordpress.com/2012/11/02/gratitude/

  68. Dearest Gilly, Good morning! Today I was happily surprised to find out that I was nominated by a fellow blogger for the “Very Inspiring Blogger” Award. This involves some kind of participation (as you probably already know)! One of the things I had to do was to propose 15 bloggers for the same award. Truth is, that the first one that came to mind was you! So, there you go my friend! Participate! http://goomfh.wordpress.com/2012/11/19/728/ This is a link to my page, where you will find the instructions! Thank you for being such an inspiration to me! :)

  69. Dear Gilly,
    Inspired by your photos and suggestion, I’ve churned out roughly 500 words of “Death in Dittisham”. Would you be interested in seeing it? It’s not remotely serious, but it is an homage of sorts to Agatha Christie. ;)

    (About six months ago, you offered me the chance to do a guest post. I’m very embarrassed that I haven’t followed up on that opportunity – considering how long it’s been, I won’t be offended if you prefer to just drop the whole thing. If you are still open to the idea, let me offer you your choice of the Dittisham story or else some miscellaneous photos of my town taken over the past summer.)

    • Hooray that’s fantastic! Of course I still want you to guest post :-) I thought you were doing nanowrimo? Which do you prefer the story or town photos? Either way I’d love to read your story. Have you got my email?

      • No – I can’t find your email. If you tell me where to locate it, I’ll be glad to send the story to you.

        Nanowrimo – yes, I’m hacking my way through it. Things seem to be getting a little easier than they were last week*, but the Dittisham story came easily enough to be a nice relaxation.

        *One of the big ideas of NaNo is “Don’t revise! Just keep writing!”, which has its good points. But I spent a week struggling uphill writing a section that I now realize won’t work, and I need to re-write that part of the story to know the details of what to do next.

  70. Hi Gilly – I just deleted your comment and emptied my trash. Thank you!

  71. Hi, I was awarded my second Blog of the year 2012 award and am honor to help someone else on their way of receiving their 6 stars. http://wp.me/p28tjX-yH

  81. I’m sorry I’ve been spamming your blog with ‘like’s. I couldn’t help myself. I got lost in it and didn’t know my way out (It probably had to do with the fact that I enjoyed every post and didn’t really want to get out) :)

  91. An old friend July 6, 2013 — 5:56 pm

    Well. I still have my EOS 5 and an eye for the right apeture if you ever want a few lessons. X

    • Well, well there you are! Do you use your camera? I love mine but I’m too lazy and don’t use it manually very often. I even did an Open university photography module, but it made me worse not better. It’s not that I don’t understand it, I’d rather just take the picture. I’ve got a good eye for an image though!

  92. Hey Gilly!! I’ve awarded your blog with the Versatile Blogger Award!! Go here for the details: http://adayinthelifeofjennay.wordpress.com/2013/09/01/the-versatile-blogger-award/

  94. Hi Gilly, nice to meet you on this blog. I love England, I love making pictures, I love travel and I can’t stop dreaming. I’ll follow you even if my English is a little bit :-(.
    Byee Beatrice

  95. Your images are priceless gems…very beautiful…it shows what your spirit’s heart knows! God bless!

  96. Just popped in here to say I LOVE your blog’s recent theme change! It looks fantastic!

  97. Whereabouts in the South-West of England is your home? For many years, I lived in the village of Harberton, just a few miles outside Totnes in South Hams, Devon.

  98. Thanks for your nice comment on my blog! Will come back regularly to watch your photo’s. Take care, Billie

  99. You have just received the Liebster Award. Go here to find out more: http://ireland-ms.com/2014/02/03/liebster-award-3/

  100. Nice meeting you Gill! Many thanks for stopping by and for the nice words you left :) Hope you’re having a cozy weekend!
    Love/Eclipse

  101. I love your new layout and theme! Great header pic too!

  102. I was unable to find a way to contact you privately so, people are confusing you with me ( I have been using the name Lucid Gypsy for years now) on twitter, facebook etc. I recently received a thank you from Cotehele NT via twitter, thanking me for mentioning them in my blog post, which is actually your blog post!

    • Dear Gloria gypsy – you have excellent taste in names! I’ve been around for quite some time as well. I find it amazing that we have not heard of each other before, in fact its positively spooky, but I don’t use my name on twitter or facebook. Just found you on twitter by clicking the link but not many tweets. Do you write or have a photoblog?

  103. Thanks for stopping by my blog and reading one of my poems. I will enjoy browsing through your blog. Have a blessed weekend!

    What a beautiful spirit you have. Thank you for looking at my blog and enabling me to find yours. I reblogged Niyoko’s art…exquisite photo perspective on that first shot. I look forward to your posts. Peace.

  105. Hello G…your west country blogging friend here! I wanted to thank you for kindly coming over to my blog and I do hope you will visit again. I just wanted to touch base with you, I’m intrigued by your blog and will definitely be back. Meanwhile, it’s lovely to meet you … Sherri :-)

  106. Please email me. I have a question about something on your website.

  107. Only just noticed your about page, Gilly. I enjoyed reading more about you, and as you may already suspect, I love visiting your blog. Sylvia xx

  108. Hi G. – I love your self-description as Afro Celt :-) Since you said you are in midlife (as I am), you were born in times before interracial relationships were “chic.” I am sure you have lots of stories growing up biracial. I am the mother of a bi-racial adult daughter and remember the early years in the US (late 70s and early 80s) were not easy in that respect. Looking forward to exploring your blog…

  109. You have won me over with your writing here. I am tired and scroling through WPC posts and I’m happy I stopped here. :)

  110. Pleased to meet you, you have a lovely blog.. And thank you so much for taking the time to look around Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary… and in the reblog of of my post.. Many thanks…
    Peace.. _/\_
