A MIXED BAG

Today, I am trying to “let go”.  Don’t misunderstand, I do this every day!! It is my nature to hold on and try to control. Haha. If you don’t believe me, ask my kids.  And, when things don’t go the way I want, I try to “fix” it, and when I cannot, I get “upset”. Continue reading “A MIXED BAG”

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!

LET’S DO IT! HERE’S TO 2018!!     New Year Resolutions!!   Best, Jay  

THE WISDOM CAFE

The Wisdom Café is a made-up name for a group of women – all ages, all nationalities – who meet twice a month at a restaurant, Les Pierres Rouges, in Valbonne, France.  Wise-wannabe’s attempting to solve life’s problems. (Haha. We wish.)   It is fun!  Twenty or thirty women who live in the South ofContinue reading “THE WISDOM CAFE”

Opéra Nice Côte d’Azur

European Opera Houses have always had a special place in my heart!  Handsome men with top hats and tuxedos. Women in long gowns, wearing furs, jewels, and long gloves. Arriving in carriages.  OK, I saw lots of movies and read Dickens.  That said, I was one of the first to sign up for the AmericanContinue reading “Opéra Nice Côte d’Azur”

“Journal of Janet Tallulah, Volume 2 was published this week. (amazon.com and smashwords.com)  These Journals, Volume 1 and Volume 2, are the realization of my lifelong dream to publish my journals. Both are intensely personal. I think of them in the following way:  Journal 1 is the hatching of a baby chicken – rough aroundContinue reading “#SmartAuthor “JOURNAL OF JANET TALLULAH, VOLUME 2””

#SmartAuthor – THE ART OF DELUSION

This week, my son Craig (Craig MacIntosh), posted this on Facebook. Bingo! It spoke to me.  It applies to everything – life in Nice, remaining young in mind while growing old, practicing law, working as an actress, teaching, exercising, dieting, marriage, writing blogs, writing books, playing the piano, raising children, growing a garden….   Then, MarkContinue reading “#SmartAuthor – THE ART OF DELUSION”

#SmartAuthor “FIGURING THINGS OUT”

From one #SmartAuthor to others, I continue to be ‘berry beezy’ in France, figuring things out. It is not easy, being an expat. Each day is full of its own challenges in real life and online. Nothing is as it seems – like opening a door, flushing the john, turning on water, working an elevator,Continue reading “#SmartAuthor “FIGURING THINGS OUT””

#SmartAuthor WRITE THAT BOOK!! JUST DO IT!!

#smartauthor  I started writing in 2012. Well, that is not really true. I started writing when I was a little girl.  The first “Diary” I have is dated 1949.  I wanted to record things – thoughts, secrets, events. I want to spend time with my best friend – ME.  During the day, I “behaved” –Continue reading “#SmartAuthor WRITE THAT BOOK!! JUST DO IT!!”
