michelle ward

sarah - thank you for sharing your story with lisa and those of us cozied up by the bonfire.

i love the story of the velvet LOVE seat but i want to hear more! i want to know the secrets she has, the happiness she embraced, the tears she comforted. who sat on her. who fainted on her. who smooched on her. what became of her. more more more!


Me too, Michelle!

Is it fantastically human or deeply magic, the way our dreams vector down to one material object? What a grand Bonfire offering...imagine us all talking at once, asking Michelle's questions, picturing each step of the day she became yours, only to be released to another. I always think of the pioneers and see the harpsicord (sp?) left, out of necessity, at the side of the trail. Bravo.


The best of the Bonfire. Sarah is an artist with her words as with her images. And much like Sarah...this story draws you in and makes you want even more! Perfect September story Lisa. Thanks!! Love it so much, I added a link to it on the Inspiration Station on the sidebar of my blog!!


Yes, wonderful story with words that just flow and move you to follow the stream of thought. Coming here from seeing you spotlighted in Seth's Inspiration Station. Super Pick!!


Don't you love when just enough is said to pique your curiosity? Mystery is life!

Thanks, Sarah.

What IS this place?

  • I’m a huge fan of stories, the kind of stories that people tell each other over coffee, on the phone, over dinner. I live to hear everything that my friends and family have to share. Card games? Charades? Bah. All of that stuff just gets in the way of the juicy part: The Stories. Come, sit here with me, and tell me what’s been going on. What have you been doing? Who have you seen? Where have you been?..... In that spirit, I’ve created The Gypsy Bonfire. I ask my authors to tell a story that you could share over a quick cup. Picture yourself sitting around a Bonfire with VERY close friends. It’s chilly, you’re cozy -maybe wrapped in a soft blanket, hands clutching a mug of steaming hot Mexican Cocoa, the creative energy is hovering just overhead. You could not be more relaxed and everyone’s sharing a story. You know… just kinda chatting……… There will be a new story on the 1st of the month or there abouts. I’ll be reminding you on my main blog. So. Join us around the Bonfire. No big deal, just a place to relax and invigorate your own stories. Get the movie going in your head. Pick out the Sound Bites from your own World. Thanks for coming by.
