THE PIANO

When I was a young girl, I took a lot of lessons – speech, voice, piano, baton twirling, dance (ballet, tap, jazz), swimming, diving, tennis.   And I was in a lot of recitals and loved being a “show-off”.  I was good at most of them.  Actually, I was good at a lot of things (especiallyContinue reading “THE PIANO”

MAY FAVORITE PHOTOS OF MINE – PARIS! 6e AND 5e!

Today, I will treat you to some of my favorite photos that I have taken during the last two weeks of lockdown .  I am going to miss the empty streets without a lot of people and clear skies with birds chirping.  Yesterday, I went into some new streets in 5e and encountered some unpleasantContinue reading “MAY FAVORITE PHOTOS OF MINE – PARIS! 6e AND 5e!”

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!”

EASTER 2020 – “CLEAN SLATES”

THIS EASTER WEEKEND, I AM working with “a clean slate”.  What do I mean?  Welllll, I am still “in lockdown”.  I cannot go out of the house without an “Attestation” (paper document) or I get fined (if I get stopped by the police).    France is not doing well with its number of cases andContinue reading “EASTER 2020 – “CLEAN SLATES””

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!”

ON MY MIND – PARIS, FRANCE – the first weekend in Lockdown

HERE’S WHAT IS ON MY MIND……  Go grab a cup of coffee, if you want to.  I have a few things that I want to say.  Actually, I am speaking to myself as I write this as well as to all of my readers.  First off, I want to thank all of you for readingContinue reading “ON MY MIND – PARIS, FRANCE – the first weekend in Lockdown”

ONE FROM THE HEART, FROM ME TO YOU……

Last night, while I was reading articles online about the virus, I heard the news in France.  “Starting at midnight Saturday, (last night), all non-essential businesses — including cafes, restaurants and movie theatres — will be closed until further notice, French Prime Minister Édouard Philippe said. Banks, gas stations, supermarkets and pharmacies will remain open”Continue reading “ONE FROM THE HEART, FROM ME TO YOU……”

JUST SAYIN…….

This has been a wonderful week!  I have gotten an excellent Vet who has helped Missy, and I have gotten a dentist in the neighborhood who cleaned my teeth. This is his waiting room.  He may or may not be a keeper.  I like his taste in art. And, finally, I got a housekeeper, whoContinue reading “JUST SAYIN…….”

A WORD OF EXPLANATION…..

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. –  Carl Jung After my last post, I had several people who care about me ask if I were all right?  I think they were taking my post literally.  No, it is/was metaphorical. Continue reading “A WORD OF EXPLANATION…..”

THE PARIS REQUIREMENT

Paris has certain requirements for me.   I have raised the bar.   In my last remaining days in Nice, it is bittersweet.  It was here that I was introduced to France, it customs, its people, its loves and its hates.  It is VERY different from the United States, where each state is different – like 50Continue reading “THE PARIS REQUIREMENT”
