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)…..”

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”

NOW! WHERE WAS I? IT WAS 1957…… AND, I WAS IN PARIS, FRANCE, AND I……

What I have on my mind today is NOT the news.  I am so alarmed and depressed about the news that I need to help myself “get a grip”.   I am walking and thinking and planning and thinking until I have OVERTHOUGHT everything.  Ouch.  I have time.  I am in Paris.  I am still alive,Continue reading “NOW! WHERE WAS I? IT WAS 1957…… AND, I WAS IN PARIS, FRANCE, AND I……”

EXPERIMENTS IN CREATIVITY!

  I am excited because all of this zooming has given me an idea.  And, today is the beginning.  This video was /is an experiment for me to work out technical difficulties with iMovie, YouTube, and WordPress.  So, I will be getting all of it better as I learn more about it.   But, here itContinue reading “EXPERIMENTS IN CREATIVITY!”

MAY FAVORITE PHOTOS OF MINE – PARIS! 6e AND 5e!

Today, I will treat you to some of my favorite photos that I have taken during the last two weeks of lockdown .  I am going to miss the empty streets without a lot of people and clear skies with birds chirping.  Yesterday, I went into some new streets in 5e and encountered some unpleasantContinue reading “MAY FAVORITE PHOTOS OF MINE – PARIS! 6e AND 5e!”

THINK ABOUT IT!!! (Revised Edition)

I have revised this post because I want to flesh it out some more.  As I said before, this week, I am beginning to think ahead, as I reflect.  From where I am sitting, I have a lot of questions. This one may require another cup of coffee.  Settle in.  The lockdown is still outsideContinue reading “THINK ABOUT IT!!! (Revised Edition)”

THE NEW NORMAL

On my mind this Sunday morning, as I sit in my Studio in the heart of Paris, I am reflecting and rambling (and defrosting the refrigerator at the same time haha). Take a look at the photograph featured above.  I have used my very favorite shot as the “featured image photograph”.   What do you see? Continue reading “THE NEW NORMAL”

ON MY MIND THIS MORNING……

This morning I woke up upset, after hearing the news. I know better than to read news before bed.  (sigh)  I am writing this at this moment because I want to……  And, I have some pictures to post……       So what is going on?   (This post is not intended as a “feel good” post. Continue reading “ON MY MIND THIS MORNING……”
