A MIXED BAG

Today, I am trying to “let go”.  Don’t misunderstand, I do this every day!! It is my nature to hold on and try to control. Haha. If you don’t believe me, ask my kids.  And, when things don’t go the way I want, I try to “fix” it, and when I cannot, I get “upset”. Continue reading “A MIXED BAG”

“AFTER THE RAIN ….”

This spring, it has rained a lot in Nice.  More than I remember last year, or the year before.  Being from Los Angeles where it seldom rains, I enjoy rainy days.  But, last week, it rained every day. Ugh. Cabin fever, galore.  By Friday, I was walking, no matter if I got drenched.  And, trueContinue reading ““AFTER THE RAIN ….””

“JUST WONDERING….”

I consider myself a “photographer” – sorta, kinda – if taking a camera and shooting a picture counts.  Haha.  No training, no planning – just doing it A LOT.   With digital cameras and Google storage, I photograph everything.  If you and I were having a coffee, chances are I would have a picture of youContinue reading ““JUST WONDERING….””

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?”

PONDERING FRENCH CREATIVITY….

The aphorism that I am pondering this week is this one: “One creates from nothing. If you try to create from something, you’re just changing something. So, in order to create something, you first have to be able to create nothing.”  Say what?  How can you create nothing?  There is always something.  Take the FrenchContinue reading “PONDERING FRENCH CREATIVITY….”

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 WINTER WALK IN NICE

This is my third winter in Nice, France. In comparison to the other places I have lived, it is nice.  Not warm, like Los Angeles, California. Not cold with ice storms, like Gainesville, Georgia. Not FREEZING, like Madison, Wisconsin.  Not mild, like San Antonio, Texas. But, as winters go, Nice winters are different.  Cold.  (Usually) VeryContinue reading “A WINTER WALK IN NICE”

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”

PLOT TWISTS

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 SEA SPEAKS TO ME

I call it “Seaspeak”. It is true – the Sea speaks to me. It always has, but now more than ever. When I walk by the Sea in the mornings, I have a favorite place to sit and face the sun.  I let go.  It never fails.  I walk away, feeling better.  These are fewContinue reading “THE SEA SPEAKS TO ME”
