I make lists. Many a night when I cannot sleep, I make lists of everything. Usually in the “Reminders” app on my IPhone or Ipad. I have a list of things I need at the pharmacy, things I want to tell or ask my friend Andrea, furniture and things that belong to my landlord Aoua that I want to purchase – if she will sell them to me. I list ideas for blogs, authors (of books) to try, things to sell (on eBay,,, Nice Buy-and-Sell), things I MUST have in my next condo. I list random thoughts I like, things to do, things to do TODAY, idea for blogs, ideas for other writings, former friends, former addresses. Ideas for blogs…

  • What Determines Worth?
  • One Hand Clapping
  • The Normalization of Extremism
  • …and, nobody knows what to do about it.
  • You won’t know you’re ok until you get there.
  • Small People
  • Ear of the King
  • My Take on Practicing Law
  • Secrecy is security and security is victory.
  • Count on change.
  • My Purchases at the Le Negresco Hotel in 1997, when I vowed to return to Nice.
  • Numbers – at any age.
  • The Click
  • The French and their Stairs
  • Baseball Caps
  • Lemonade from Lemons
  • Timelines
  • Objective vs Subjective Camera

Needless to say, there are many mornings when I wake up exhausted. But, it helps me get through long nights without Steve. I miss him very much. I want him back. This minute. At least I am beginning to do things we loved to do together. I avoided a lot of them for six months. Today, after my physical therapy session (knee problems) and lunch, I walked from the Port to the Flower Market. First, I had lunch at Delibo – one of our favorite restaurants. Then, I walked the pathway we frequently walked together, taking pictures of everything. I am posting a few of my favorites. My way of making lemonade.



Best, Jay
