I need to rest my mind because I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment. Nothing is working. Well, that’s not true. The hotspot is working. Otherwise I would not be able to get the internet. But the in-house Wi-Fi is not working. And, I don’t know how to access it. Neither does my landlord. Continue reading “A BRIEF INTERLUDE”

THE PARIS REQUIREMENT
Paris has certain requirements for me. I have raised the bar. In my last remaining days in Nice, it is bittersweet. It was here that I was introduced to France, it customs, its people, its loves and its hates. It is VERY different from the United States, where each state is different – like 50Continue reading “THE PARIS REQUIREMENT”
22 DAYS TO GO – Paris-Bound
We are living in interesting times! That is definitely one way to look at the news. I don’t like most of what I see and hear. AND, I am not getting my way with most things, but I will concede– the news is not boring. Alarming, yes. Boring, no. And, when I am just doingContinue reading “22 DAYS TO GO – Paris-Bound”
HAPPY TWENTIES (2020)!
Earlier in Jayspeak, I wrote about “decades” and added a photograph that was taken during the year 1937, 1947, 1957 and so forth during the years that I was born and then turned 10, 20, 30, and so forth, ending with the year that I turned 80. Well, this is a different kind of “decade. Continue reading “HAPPY TWENTIES (2020)!”
DOES IT FIT?
Does WHAT fit? This is about… the Operative Question for me has always been – Do I / THEY / HE / SHE / IT fit? My intuition has been one of my best friends throughout my life. And, slowly but surely, I have begun counting on it to lead the way. So, upon reflection,Continue reading “DOES IT FIT?”
KEEP THE PONY!
“When things get tough, the tough get going.” (- Jesse Dickson Jewell (Daddy)) “With all this s_____ , there must be a pony here somewhere” (- Janet Tallulah Jewell (me)). “Is the glass half full or half empty?” (- I don’t remember). My family was big on metaphors/cliches/similes, especially DaddyContinue reading “KEEP THE PONY!”
MEMORIES REMAIN IN THE HEART
Some additional thoughts about downsizing. I have gotten some interesting comments about getting rid of things. But, moving will usually motivate people to get started. I just am a drastic case. I started with a lot, and I now have room physically for a little. Also, I don’t have anyone who wants my stuff butContinue reading “MEMORIES REMAIN IN THE HEART”
This is one of those days when I have so many ideas for posts in my head that I don’t know where to start. The downsizing is taking on a life of its own and really a lot of fun. At first, I was just throwing things in the trash. I did that until IContinue reading “NEW LIFE”
Paris Week! Yes, I went to Paris on the train for six nights and seven days (two travel days). On Monday, October 21, 2019, I got on the TGV High Speed Train to Paris at Gare Nice Ville. My tickets were First Class because I wanted all the bells and whistles that First Class provided. IContinue reading “PARIS WEEK”
