I am looking forward to my birthday and have lots of ideas for things to do next year. Is my apartment a playground or a prison ? Both. I want a playground. But most of all I am happy to be alive and living from day to day. I am sorry I downsized andContinue reading “MORE CHOICES ON MARCH 17, 2023”

CURVE BALLS with love FROM PARIS from Jay!
This has been on my mind this past week…….. Life is full of unexpected twists and turns, and sometimes we find ourselves in situations that we cannot change. It can be frustrating and disheartening, but it’s important to remember that these challenges are not meant to defeat us, but to inspire us to change ourselves.Continue reading “CURVE BALLS with love FROM PARIS from Jay!”
HIGH OR LOW ROAD
All right. I give up. Nobody wants real. Everybody want a pipe dream. Even I don’t to reveal what is really going on, except to the girl in the mirror. So, I won’t try to interpret today’s post. You decide how you want to interpret each one. I pick the selections and I won’t tryContinue reading “HIGH OR LOW ROAD”
JUNE PURGES and WEEKEND FUNNIES
I WENT TO GET SOMETHING I wanted for a reason of some sort. IT IS NOT THERE!!!! IT SHOULD BE!! Then, I remembered – I threw that away in Purge 11! Oops. Explanation – I like to throw things away. I collected things for my first 4 decades. And after that, I began purging. AndContinue reading “JUNE PURGES and WEEKEND FUNNIES”
A MIDNIGHT TRAIN THROUGH GEORGIA!
Grab a coffee. This may take a while. This post matters – to ME. And I am sharing it with you. THIS IS ONE WAY TO LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED. There are many others.

Some days I am filled with energy and others are very lethargic. Today is not so hot after a wonderful day yesterday. So, let’s both grab a cup of coffee. That helps to give us a break. And coffee goes with everything in Paris. This week I have been pondering a lot of things –Continue reading “FROM PARIS WITH LOVE”
SHIFTS AND CHANGES – CHAPTER 10
Well, this was the week from Hell and back. I am reeling from shock about “better days ahead” and trying to understand what just happened. In addition, I have had a cold (not Covid) all week. On antibiotics. With Laryngitis. I don’t know where to start. This may be a two-parter because I have soContinue reading “SHIFTS AND CHANGES – CHAPTER 10”
SOME THOUGHTS FOR AUGUST 2021
Those of you who know me or have followed me on Jayspeak know that I have lived a life of relative abundance. And “things” mattered, and I had a lot of “stuff”. I had saved everything in case I MIGHT NEED IT OR WANT IT SOMEDAY. I made sure that I provided for my childrenContinue reading “SOME THOUGHTS FOR AUGUST 2021”
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)…..”
PARIS BEGINNING – FIRST TEN DAYS!
For as long as I can remember, I have thought to myself, I will figure this out! And, I would figure whatever it was – out, no matter the consequence. I did not think there existed many situations or problems that I could not figure out some kind of solution. Resourceful? Maybe. Maybe foolhardy. MostContinue reading “PARIS BEGINNING – FIRST TEN DAYS!”
