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”

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?”

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”

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!

LET’S DO IT! HERE’S TO 2018!!     New Year Resolutions!!   Best, Jay  

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”

#SmartAuthor “JOURNAL OF JANET TALLULAH, VOLUME 2”

“Journal of Janet Tallulah, Volume 2 was published this week. (amazon.com and smashwords.com)  These Journals, Volume 1 and Volume 2, are the realization of my lifelong dream to publish my journals. Both are intensely personal. I think of them in the following way:  Journal 1 is the hatching of a baby chicken – rough aroundContinue reading “#SmartAuthor “JOURNAL OF JANET TALLULAH, VOLUME 2””

#SmartAuthor – THE ART OF DELUSION

This week, my son Craig (Craig MacIntosh), posted this on Facebook. Bingo! It spoke to me.  It applies to everything – life in Nice, remaining young in mind while growing old, practicing law, working as an actress, teaching, exercising, dieting, marriage, writing blogs, writing books, playing the piano, raising children, growing a garden….   Then, MarkContinue reading “#SmartAuthor – THE ART OF DELUSION”

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, EVERYBODY!

“We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing; He chastens and hastens His will to make known; The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing; Sing praises to His Name; He forgets not His own.” “Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining, Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine; So from the beginning the fightContinue reading “HAPPY THANKSGIVING, EVERYBODY!”

#SmartAuthor “A STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE”

#SmartAuthor   The Launch Team is at it again!!  As a dedicated member of the Team, I urge all you “writer-want-a-be’s” to investigate these sites and listen to these podcasts. I wish I had heard them in 2012. I am listening to them now, sometimes twice, and amazed at what Steve Orlandella (my deceased husband) andContinue reading “#SmartAuthor “A STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE””
