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…..”

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)!”
OK, this is more than you ever wanted to know, AND more than I ever thought I would expose. It is true confessions combined with book promotion. Haha. Grab a coffee! Here goes…… When I was in my 30’s, I moved from a relatively small southern town in Georgia to Los Angeles, California. July 1968. Continue reading “THE JOURNALS”
FOOD FOR THOUGHT – THE LAW OF UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES
One of the perks for me in watching International CNN in France, is that I get to see the Christiane Amanpour program. She is host of CNN International’s nightly interview program “Amanpour”. It reminds me of the days when Jinx Falkenburg, one of America’s highest paid cover-girl models during World War II – with herContinue reading “FOOD FOR THOUGHT – THE LAW OF UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES”
LEGACY, TWO YEARS LATER STEVE ORLANDELLA
TAKE A BREAK! Settle back and give your mind a rest for a few minutes from the upcoming election to read some information about STEVE ORLANDELLA. Who? A man I was fortunate enough to have known for 23 years and to have spent 11 years of my life as his wife. A lot of usContinue reading “LEGACY, TWO YEARS LATER STEVE ORLANDELLA”
DON’T TAKE YOUR LIBERTIES FOR GRANTED!
This week, I was planning to write a blog about the month of August, but I will save that for when we get to August on the calendar. But, this August will be an important month for me. I will be travelling to Boston, Massachusetts, to take Steve home. Steve had a passion for BostonContinue reading “DON’T TAKE YOUR LIBERTIES FOR GRANTED!”
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 BASEBALL MEMORY
In the midst of all the chaos going on in the world, especially in my United States, it is good to remember constants that bring us together. Like baseball. Apple pie. Hot dogs. Even though baseball is in “full swing” right now, I need to post this video. It makes me feel good when theContinue reading “A BASEBALL MEMORY”
A PHILOSOPHICAL MOMENT….
Often, I think of philosophical concepts that interest me, like “the sound of one hand clapping” or “creativity is intelligence having fun” or “obligation can be a prison” or the philosopher Lao Tzu’s question he asked over 2500 years ago that perfectly describes the spirit phase, “Can you step back from your own mind and thusContinue reading “A PHILOSOPHICAL MOMENT….”
