“SeaTrek” is Jayspeak for those times when I walk from my home to the Sea – wherever it is feasible. In Los Angeles, I walked from our home in Westwood to the palisades park in Santa Monica, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. That was approximately eight miles. Once I arrived at my destination, I would callContinue reading “SEATREK-1, IN THE FALL”

NOT JUST ANOTHER “MONDAY”….
Monday is Halloween, October 31, 2016. They don’t pay much attention to Halloween in this town. Delicious candy is in the stores, but… there is always candy in the stores – delicious gourmet chocolates and boxes of goodies. No huge sacks of small Hershey Bars. Store windows have a “fall” theme. My Halloween fun willContinue reading “NOT JUST ANOTHER “MONDAY”….”
IN LIEU OF “CUT AND PASTE”….
Grammar has always been fun for me. When I was in “Grammar School”, I learned how to diagram sentences. We built little bridges and put words places that made little pictures.

After lunch, we might browseContinue reading “OUR HONEYMOON – 11 Years Later”

Instead, she decorated the house with silk roses that Henry George helped her buy. I never liked the silk ones because I was aContinue reading “A ROSE IS A ROSE IS A ROSE….”
SMALL THINGS MATTER
A lot is going on over here on the French Riviera. Each day is filled with at least one crisis, often more. And, it is always exciting to go to the mailbox to see what has arrived in this day’s mail. Usually, it is another bill or problem or requirement or whatever. The list goesContinue reading “SMALL THINGS MATTER”
CAST IN FRANCE “DAMIEN’S REAWAKENING”
Once again doing my first love – ACTING. Over the past few weeks, as I began to realize that life as I had known it was over, I tried to get a grip because at night, I would panic. Aside from bills, problems, money, crises one-after-another, I realized that I am in France, not CaliforniaContinue reading “CAST IN FRANCE “DAMIEN’S REAWAKENING””
