Today, I want to post something easy on JAYSPEAK because it has been a stressful week, and I am exhausted from the emotions that I have experienced. I don’t want to write about all the things that have happened, so I am going to do what I do when I need a rest – post photos of roses. That is my go-to “happy place”.This memory came up on Facebook for me – I don’t know what year. Sometime before October 1, 2015. That is the date that Steve and I moved to Nice, France.
So Enjoy these photos.
“For the record — in case anyone thinks that all I do is walk around the west side of Los Angeles and take pictures of flowers, let me say that I choose not to post about my job – litigating employment cases on behalf of plaintiffs and practicing entertainment law. Maybe I should, because I practice law full-time, and it is contentious, stressful, exhilarating, upsetting, anxiety-producing, interesting, and demanding. I am constantly on the move, writing motions, answering and propounding discovery, conducting or defending depositions, going to court, meeting new potential clients, and so forth. So, as many mornings as I can, I walk for 2 hours – early before dawn — to work out the stress and prepare for the upcoming day. During those walks, I allow my mind to wander, and take pictures of roses (mostly) with my IPhone. As Paul Harvey would say… and now you know the rest of the story.—”
Best, Jay “Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone who Celebrates.”
