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”

TRUTH, OR LIE?
Next week is my birthday – my annual time to take stock. Where have I been; where am I now; where am I going; what matters to me at this time in my life? Is there a truth that fits my reality? Aphorism of the week – “Man keeps looking for a truth that fitsContinue reading “TRUTH, OR LIE?”
IN MY COPIOUS FREE TIME….
During those moments when I am not thinking or over-thinking everything else, I ponder “wisdoms” or “philosophical quotes” or “Up to My A.. in Aphorisms”. The one that is getting my attention this week goes like this, “If you could really accept that you weren’t ok, you could stop proving you were ok. If youContinue reading “IN MY COPIOUS FREE TIME….”
A PROJECT WORTH DOING
Steve Orlandella loved to write. By July, 2016, he was on a roll – brimming with ideas for his blog “Stevespeak”, his next novel CASINO KILLER, A Vic Landell Mystery, and witty, satiric, sarcastic Facebook posts. He had fun writing, then reading and re-reading what he had to say. I think he had more funContinue reading “A PROJECT WORTH DOING”
There are so many plot twists going on right now that I am dizzy. The woods are on fire in the United States; revelry is happening on the streets of Nice; and skill extraordinary is on display in the mountains and flats of South Korea. When I turn on the television, I don’t know whetherContinue reading “PLOT TWISTS”

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”
TYPICAL MORNING WALKS – NOVEMBRE 2017
I have had a love affair with the Sea for as long as I can remember. There is something about being near it that satisfies my longing for peace, even for a moment. In 1968, I traveled across the United States to live by the Sea. (Yes, I know, the Atlantic was closer, but IContinue reading “TYPICAL MORNING WALKS – NOVEMBRE 2017”
