MY LITTLE CORNER OF THE COTE!

This is not what I had in mind when I got on the plane to Nice, France, in the fall of 2015, mind you. But, after much bemoaning and bewailing about having to downsize, I actually am enjoying my little corner of the Côte. No, I don’t have a Sea view. No, I don’t have a mountainContinue reading “MY LITTLE CORNER OF THE COTE!”

SUPER LAWYER – January 2018

Forgive me, time out while I brag.  This January 2018, I was named in “The Annual List of Top Attorneys” in Southern California 2018 Super Lawyers, in the top 5% of lawyers, as voted by my peers. Every year, Super Lawyers evaluates lawyers across the country for its annual list of top attorneys. Each candidateContinue reading “SUPER LAWYER – January 2018”

SATURDAY IN MOUGINS – January 20, 2018

On my patio sits a old bug-eaten, weather-worn, gnarled geranium. No telling how long it has been there, or who planted it. It sits in a small flower box against the back fence. I vow to replace it every time I look at it. This morning, I took a walk around the patio, making aContinue reading “SATURDAY IN MOUGINS – January 20, 2018”

JANUARY 13TH, SATURDAY, in Nice. 2018.

Patience is not my strong suit. I have spent most of my life trying to conquer my need for instant gratification. Do it now; figure out how to deal with the consequences later. Another way to say that is, stick my hand into the fire; then figure out if it is hot. Or, out ofContinue reading “JANUARY 13TH, SATURDAY, in Nice. 2018.”

A GENTLE REMINDER

“This life will go by fast.   – Don’t fight with people, don’t criticize your body so much, don’t complain so much.    – Don’t lose sleep over your bills. Look for the person that makes you happy. If you make a mistake, let it go and keep seeking your happiness.   – Never stopContinue reading “A GENTLE REMINDER”

AUGUST 2017

Nothing is quite like the month of August.  Someone should write a song – like Gilbert and Sullivan. Something like “It’s May. It’s May. The Lusty Month of May!”  ALL of France goes on “holiday”. The rest of the world comes to town – to eat, to swim, to sunbathe, to dance, to sight-see.  TouristContinue reading “AUGUST 2017”

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””

UPDATE – Les Alliances françaises’ Photography Contest

In February 2017, (as the followers of Jayspeakblog know), I entered an International Photography Contest, “Three Cities, Three Carnivals”, sponsored by my “school” in Nice – Alliance françaises with Les Alliances françaises de Venice and Rio. The contest took place between February 11 and March 10, 2017. Participants from each of Les Alliances françaises wereContinue reading “UPDATE – Les Alliances françaises’ Photography Contest”

“If you want to make God smile, tell him your plans” (Stevespeak quoting Vin Scully)

Making plans is fun. Steve and I made plans – things we would do after we got to France. For eleven months, we did a lot of them. Then, life happened. Not in the Plan. Once I could think, I started trying to plan on my own. What can I do? I am trained toContinue reading ““If you want to make God smile, tell him your plans” (Stevespeak quoting Vin Scully)”
