FIRST POST of – “A Moment in Time” (Hazel)

Welcome! This is my first attempt at “self-taping” a moment in time. She is a character, named “Hazel”. Be patient with me. I am getting this rusty machine up and running. In reviewing this video, the sound is off. Is it something I am doing? I taped it into my Mac on iMovie, save it to a file, uploaded it onto YouTube, transferred it onto WordPress, and uploaded it onto social media. So, somewhere there is a technical problem. Also, I am experimenting with all of this. So, I have problems to solve tech-wise and with my performances. I cannot control the my age. Sorry about that. So, we have to aim for characters. (sigh)

ALSO, wordpress has a new editor. And, I am posting my first attempt to make “A Moment in Time”. As I said last week, I plan to practice “self-taping ” so that I get better at it for whatever. Actually, it gives me an opportunity to act in my own space in this tiny Studio apartment here in Paris! Big whoop! I still cannot believe that I am actually in Paris.

AND, if that were not enough (new video, new editor), I got an new haircut! I had my hair cut again this morning in a little out-of-the-way salon, and it was fun. Not high fashion or anything spectacular but I enjoyed going there and getting my hair done. It was a little salon named Fifi Art Coiff in the 5e. I don’t know the stylist’s name but I liked her. I had passed by it on my walks, walked in, made an appointment for Friday (today) and went in. Here it is, with hair and makeup.

AND, coming home, I saw a pret a manger on Saint Michel open and got a delicious fresh sandwich and a cookie for lunch. I also saw two dress shops with dresses I like to visit once I begin “shopping” once again. So, a lot is going on. Be prepared for weekly moments in time because I plan to work an hour a day on my “self’-taping. ” Fun times. Ok, I am working on all of it, especially my attitude. Stay tuned……….

Best, Jay

    1. Thank you, Annie. I am glad you like it. It is easier to keep short. But, it won’t look like this once I do it without the stylist. Haha. Oh, well. Jay

  1. I like your haircut. Also happy to read your ideas about the videos. I just watched your Hazel one and enjoyed.

    I have a question though. What happened to the wrinkles in your new photo? Did you photo shop them away or do you have some magic “actors only” way of hiding them? I hate mine!

    Have a good weekend. I hope you were able get out and have a nice lunch and maybe buy a bottle of wine. Isn’t there a person from your earlier photos eating together in a restaurant to take a walk with? Or maybe you prefer to be alone so you can take your pictures better.

    Pretty day here so I will get my bell pepper plant planted finally. We’ve had so much rain lately.

    Do you and Carole keep in touch? I have wondered how she is.

    Take care —Kay >


    1. Hi, Kay, I just have on makeup. Otherwise, the photo is untouched. No photoshop. I just did not have on makeup in the first video. I have wrinkles and what you see is what is there. No actress tricks. Sorry. The restaurants here are not open. So, no, I did not get out to have a nice lunch. Yes, I often meet people for lunch. But, now, It is not possible. I had a housekeeper today. That was nice. And, I got out for a walk. So all is well. Thanks. Yes, Carole and I stay in touch with regular emails. She is fine. Thanks for commenting. Jay
