THE NEW NORMAL

On my mind this Sunday morning, as I sit in my Studio in the heart of Paris, I am reflecting and rambling (and defrosting the refrigerator at the same time haha). Take a look at the photograph featured above.  I have used my very favorite shot as the “featured image photograph”.   What do you see? Continue reading “THE NEW NORMAL”

OUTSIDE MY DOOR – ONE MILE; 40 MINUTES!

BREAKING NEWS!!!  I got stopped by the police again this morning!  France has tightened restrictions regarding jogging and walking for exercise because people (young and old) were just going about their business, as usual, as far as getting together to exercise, laugh, and enjoy the spring weather in Paris.  Damn!  I have waited to doContinue reading “OUTSIDE MY DOOR – ONE MILE; 40 MINUTES!”

ANTHONY BOURDAIN (1956 – 2018)

I came upon this article in a unusual way – by way of Facebook, in the middle of the night, unable to sleep in an uncomfortable bed at my Convalescence Center after my second knee surgery on June 27th.  (The Universe is teaching me the art of patience AGAIN and AGAIN!  Patience is not myContinue reading “ANTHONY BOURDAIN (1956 – 2018)”

MY CHRISTMAS GIFT TO YOU….

This is my Christmas gift to you.  It is a piece written by a woman I don’t know – By Maria Popov. I have friends who find these gems and then post them on social media.  My friend Karen Kondazian found this one. My thanks to her.  This one puts into words important “considerations” forContinue reading “MY CHRISTMAS GIFT TO YOU….”

PAUL PEDULLA – ARTIST (AND WRITER)

Paul Pedulla is my cousin-in-law. This post honors Paul as an Artist.  He and Steve were cousins and also good friends. As a result, we saw him when we were in Boston in 2008, and he and his partner Lawrence had dinner with us when they were in Los Angeles in 2013 (I think itContinue reading “PAUL PEDULLA – ARTIST (AND WRITER)”

COMFORT ZONES

Between you and me, I don’t think I have any comfort zones anymore. Steve and I had created a comfort zone together, and were very happy, writing, working, and eating “comfort food” – pasta, Steve’s gravy, and his special homemade meatballs along with olives, baguettes, salami, and fresh ground parmesan cheese or Romano. We didContinue reading “COMFORT ZONES”

FOOD FOR THOUGHT IN “THE INTERESTING TIMES IN WHICH WE LIVE”

As the old Chinese curse has it: “May you live in interesting times,” and the twentieth century is probably the most “interesting” period mankind has ever known. Now and then, I see an article on Facebook that I save because something about it is “interesting’ to me.  After I save it, I may or mayContinue reading “FOOD FOR THOUGHT IN “THE INTERESTING TIMES IN WHICH WE LIVE””

A DAY BY THE SEA IN ANTIBES

On Saturday, June 16, 2018, two of my U.S. expat friends, Pamela Keilson (from San Francisco) and Margaret Keith (from Selma, Alabama), drove with me to a fun event by the Sea in Antibes, hosted by The American Club of the Riviera (ACR). Antibes is the home to Port Vauban, the largest yachting harbor inContinue reading “A DAY BY THE SEA IN ANTIBES”

THE BEACH AND ME

This week, I went to the beach in Nice. That is a big deal. It only took me TWO YEARS!! Well, that is not true.  Steve and I walked along the Promenade almost every Sunday and sometimes more.  I walk to the Sea on my Sea-trek’s.  I went swimming in the Sea while Steve andContinue reading “THE BEACH AND ME”

“CAPTURING BEAUTY”

Today, when I was walking home from Monoprix (my local supermarket), I decided to check out the roses in Le Jardin du Monastère de Cimiez. The last time I looked, the buds were in process. Lo and behold, beautiful roses were everywhere! Here are a few of my favorites. Stay tuned.   FOR SALE ONContinue reading ““CAPTURING BEAUTY””
