5 YEARS LATER…PARIS – OCTOBER 2020

This is my world and welcome to it! What is on my mind this weekend? Lots. I have settled into my new home in Paris, 16e. I like it. It is not perfect (by a long shot) but the feeling is right. That is what is important. But, right now, I am staying in andContinue reading “5 YEARS LATER…PARIS – OCTOBER 2020”

PARIS – “HUNKERING DOWN !

What a glorious September morning in Paris! I am sitting here in my new apartment in the 16th Arrondissement of Paris, aware that I feel good and am hunkering down. I just had a small breakfast and coffee on the balcony and remembered that I need to start a blog for this weekend. Actually, thatContinue reading “PARIS – “HUNKERING DOWN !”

ON MY MIND THIS MORNING (August 15, 2020)…..

“Without freedom, you have nothing left.”  (from Hong Kong.)  I quit!  “This year, “character is on the ballot.”  I agree.  “No one sees us. It is like we don’t exist.”  (from Belarus).  Bottom line, I have reached overload.  MY being “emotionally vested” has reached a saturation point.  Sorta.  But, I cannot love, care, and beContinue reading “ON MY MIND THIS MORNING (August 15, 2020)…..”

AUGUST (sigh)

August 2020.  August has become a difficult month for me.  “Bittersweet”.  I think that is the correct use of that word.   First of all, it was full of birthdays when I was growing up.  Lots of good friends had birthdays in August.  As my friends and I have grown apart through the years, I  beganContinue reading “AUGUST (sigh)”

STARTING OVER…….AGAIN……….

I am starting over.  Today is August 2, 2020, and it is a new day for me.  Why?  OK, here goes….  Some of this is repetitive to those who “follow” Jayspeak.  But, a lot of it is not. That said, during July, I had a bunch of tests plus an MRI to find out whyContinue reading “STARTING OVER…….AGAIN……….”

THE PIANO

When I was a young girl, I took a lot of lessons – speech, voice, piano, baton twirling, dance (ballet, tap, jazz), swimming, diving, tennis.   And I was in a lot of recitals and loved being a “show-off”.  I was good at most of them.  Actually, I was good at a lot of things (especiallyContinue reading “THE PIANO”

JOHN LEWIS, DAN RATHER, AND JESSE JEWELL CHICKENS Ramblings…..

As you know (if you have been keeping up with the news), our democracy is under attack.  And many of us are weary and afraid of what’s to come. I am.  Irrational anger. Vicious hate. Meanness.  Greed.  Someone said that we can still be friends, even if we don’t agree.  Uh, no.  And, no oneContinue reading “JOHN LEWIS, DAN RATHER, AND JESSE JEWELL CHICKENS Ramblings…..”

THROUGH MY EYES…..

THROUGH MY EYES…..  Whenever I see something new or learn something new, I try to think about how it applies to my life?  I ask myself “Why is this significant to me?”  That is the only way I seem to be able to relate.  I must make it personal in some way.  I do theContinue reading “THROUGH MY EYES…..”

P.S. (a post script, e.g. #life at work)

After my post “PONDERINGS ABOUT TRUTH”, I now know that most people are aware that a lot of people conceal and lie to “save face” or on a “need to know” basis only. And, it is never wise to name names in a post or in a book.  It only causes more problems with peopleContinue reading “P.S. (a post script, e.g. #life at work)”

PONDERINGS about TRUTH

Today, I am thinking out loud.  On my mind all week have been a lot of thoughts about the “Code of Silence” – that unspoken CODE that is part of police departments throughout the world.  Yes, the world.  I cannot tell you how many televisions shows – GOOD television shows on the BBC and USAContinue reading “PONDERINGS about TRUTH”
