MEET LILLIAN! – Revised!

MEET LILLIAN. Who?  Why? Lillian is on my mind this week.   She was my aunt.  My mother’s sister.  I wrote about her over last weekend, but that post was too long, and Lillian “got lost in the shuffle.”  So, now, Lillian has a post of her own!  She matters because she mattered.  A woman beforeContinue reading “MEET LILLIAN! – Revised!”

ALIVE IN MY HEART! LILLIE!

This week, I have had a lot of friends reach out to me.  Great.  Because it is rather bleak in this small apartment in Paris.  I have my favorite songs playing on Spotify; Missy is close by; and a lot of projects in the works, so I stay busy.  AND, I have WiFi (FINALLY) andContinue reading “ALIVE IN MY HEART! LILLIE!”

THROUGH MY EYES …..

Those who know me know that I am not afraid of change.  And, of late, I have been craving change of location – namely Paris.  So as I begin the process of tackling all the matters that must be handled prior to a move, I found this post on Facebook.  It makes sense to meContinue reading “THROUGH MY EYES …..”

“THREE YEARS LATER – Remembering…

I know.  I know.  I said I was not going to write anything today.  And, here I am.  But, I have some thoughts that I want to share.  Plus, writing brings me comfort.  And, if you find this a tad “schmaltzy” (is that a word…), thank you in advance for bearing with me. Three yearsContinue reading ““THREE YEARS LATER – Remembering…”

UPDATE – WONDERFUL MOMENTS aka MIRACLES! -“SIX DAYS IN JUNE, 2019”

YES!!  Six wonderful days in June!!  I loved every moment.  The arrival, the family dinners, and the farewell.  Those moments were precious to me.  Just knowing they were down the street was comforting to me.  Getting to hug them both.  Seeing their happy faces in the pictures they were posting for friends back home.  ItContinue reading “UPDATE – WONDERFUL MOMENTS aka MIRACLES! -“SIX DAYS IN JUNE, 2019””

UP THE HILL!

The Park.  The Monastery.  The garden.  The ancient city.  It is all there – up the hill from my house.  A mere bus ride away.  In the park, there is a track  that circles it.  Runner, walkers, bicyclists, all use the track.  And, in doing so, they pass the remains of the ancient Roman city ofContinue reading “UP THE HILL!”

A COMING-OF-AGE STORY! HaHa!!

CHRISTMAS “FUNNIES”

Remember the “funnies”.  At least, that is what we called them.  I don’t think newspapers have a “funnies” page anymore, do they?  That is what I would tell Daddy to pass to me when he was reading The Atlanta Journal on Sunday mornings at the breakfast table.  It was the ONLY thing I would readContinue reading “CHRISTMAS “FUNNIES””
