Alternate Paths, or Imaginings


Hi I been tagged, by fellow artist
http://swhiteartonebay.blogspot.com/
So I’ve decided to list these seven previously untold, .Alternate Paths, or Imaginings.
I have some scraps of memory very clear visually, but I haven’t a clue where they are from, these are the first three listed...
One is my riding under some low fir trees. Its Autumn/Winter, I can smell the pine scent, and the horses body, I think I’m side-saddle, but not sure, and I’m wearing long fine leather gloves a soft hat, speared with some clip at the side which I’m worried about losing, as I keep checking it.
The second is its definitely Winter, I’m cold, Stamping my feet which are in leather buttoned boots with extend above the ankle with a small heel. I’m wearing a dark subdued heavy weight burgundy velvet jacket, and floor length skirt, I don't seem to have a coat, I’m waiting for a coach. I have a small bag or luggage of some kind.
The third, I’m a child 5/6yrs its very hot its summer, I’m skipping along as children do. there are roses down the side of the drive. I think a man ,maybe my father , is under the car working on something. Its an american looking car maybe 1940-50’s
The next four, are just some of the lives I would have liked to have lived. (I have a big List)
Became a notorious, and hopefully uncaptured lady highwayman. As in The Wicked Lady (1945) starring Margaret Lockwood. (In actual fact I would have probably been an notorious horse thief and got myself hanged at the crossroads!)
Lived the life of a Cowgirl, just horses, and my trusted dog. (which probably equates to slept in the barn like a hobo)
Taken to an ‘Indiana Jones’ style life of adventure, treasure hunts, following clues through history, cracking the codes, fending off the evil villains and of course getting the treasure. (Been a terrible geek, and just visited lots of museums; which I already do & enjoy)
High Seas adventure as a villainous and ruthless Pirate Privateer, the scourge of The Spanish Maine.
(Who knows perhaps I could have managed that one!)

Thats it!, hope you enjoyed those I’m not tagging anyone else this time, as most people I know blogwise, have all been tagged recently.

Could the first three images be coming from the memories of your past lives? Interesting.
