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)!”

THE SIXTH OF JULY! CARTOONS & NO COMMENTARY!!

BACK WHEN (1978) when I was having a love affair with the theatre and acting, I saw a play at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.  It made a lasting impression on me.  I thought about it a lot yesterday. Actually, ever since then, I think of it every fifth of July – theContinue reading “THE SIXTH OF JULY! CARTOONS & NO COMMENTARY!!”

THIS IS MY WORLD AND WELCOME TO IT!

Yesterday was France’s “Labor Day”, aka La Fête du Travail. It was a day when I did a lot of nothing.  A meeting with my landlord in the morning, but after that, a lot of nothing. It was a public holiday and a key day for the celebration of workers’ rights all over the country,Continue reading “THIS IS MY WORLD AND WELCOME TO IT!”

SOME PÂQUES THOUGHTS – 2019 IN NICE, FRANCE

At this time of the year, I find my soul searching for answers – something definite that I can hold onto.  And my mind works overtime, waiting for the rest of me to catch up.

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””

CHRISTMAS IN PARIS

“Everyone should see Paris at Christmas time at least once a lifetime.” said Steve. Jay replied, “Sounds good to me”. That was the way it began. I booked an Airbnb in the Marais for four nights; we bought easyJet round trip tickets to Paris-Charles de Gaulle; we packed what few clothes we had for coldContinue reading “CHRISTMAS IN PARIS”
