CHAPTER TEN – “THE NEW NORMAL”

Grab a coffee. We are charging ahead, DESPITE all systems saying, “BREAKING NEWS!!!!” We are moving into Janet’s Chapter TEN. When last we spoke, I was flailing around in Chapter 9, adjusting to my new-found life in Paris. Then BAM, BAM, BAM, BAM. It happened. What happened? Chaos. THE NEW NORMAL! Are you talking aboutContinue reading “CHAPTER TEN – “THE NEW NORMAL””

JANET In Paris! Status Update!

I woke up this morning filled with alarm. The good news: I woke up.. The bad news: alarmed. About what? EVERYTHING. You name it, I was alarmed. Then I remembered (as if I ever forget) my blood pressure. Oops. Got to calm down. How ? Log onto social media. Oops. Maybe that wasn’t a goodContinue reading “JANET In Paris! Status Update!”

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”

INTERLUDES – A MOMENT IN TIME – “just for fun”

For years, I have watched British mysteries and legal dramas for fun. I like them. I still do. I am currently spending time watch David Suchet as “Poirot” in Agatha Christie mysteries. And often, there will be an episode – here and there – surrounding Bees. So, when I saw this piece, I saved itContinue reading “INTERLUDES – A MOMENT IN TIME – “just for fun””

JOHN LEWIS, DAN RATHER, AND JESSE JEWELL CHICKENS Ramblings…..

As you know (if you have been keeping up with the news), our democracy is under attack.  And many of us are weary and afraid of what’s to come. I am.  Irrational anger. Vicious hate. Meanness.  Greed.  Someone said that we can still be friends, even if we don’t agree.  Uh, no.  And, no oneContinue reading “JOHN LEWIS, DAN RATHER, AND JESSE JEWELL CHICKENS Ramblings…..”

Taking a Knee In Support

Last night, I was not having a good night and, as a result, I had trouble going to sleep. And, I kept reading about events happening in Paris, London, Russia, Iran, Germany, China, and in the USA. until I managed to work up a high state of anxiety and despair.  And, somehow, when I readContinue reading “Taking a Knee In Support”

RANDOM THOUGHTS DURING “LOCKDOWN – PARIS”

For those who don’t know, I am in Paris, France, under lockdown.  What does that mean?  For me, it means that I need to stay home and “self-quarantine” as much as possible.  Why? Because I don’t want to die just yet.  I still have some things that I really want to do in this areaContinue reading “RANDOM THOUGHTS DURING “LOCKDOWN – PARIS””

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!”

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)!”

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 …..”
