ON VACATION IN PARIS, AUGUST 2021!

HELLO, AUGUST,2021!!   I thought you would never get here.  Frankly, I love September.  But August is full of surprises for me.   I “remember” 2 wedding anniversaries, 5 birthdays of important people in my FORMER life, and one VIP death.  So, I am up and then I am down.  Let’s share and walk down memory lane,Continue reading “ON VACATION IN PARIS, AUGUST 2021!”

SOME THOUGHTS FOR AUGUST 2021

Those of you who know me or have followed me on Jayspeak know that I have lived a life of relative abundance. And “things” mattered, and I had a lot of “stuff”. I had saved everything in case I MIGHT NEED IT OR WANT IT SOMEDAY. I made sure that I provided for my childrenContinue reading “SOME THOUGHTS FOR AUGUST 2021”

PARIS UPDATE

This has been a wonderful week of catchup for me with lots of ups and downs.  No comment. And now I am asking you to sit in the dark with me in case we are either one having difficulty seeing the bright side. Something or other triggers that recurring doom-and-gloom and then I have toContinue reading “PARIS UPDATE”

SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS AND NO MEMES FOR THE END OF JUNE 2021

WHAT IS ON MY MIND? Paris and Moi. Yes, Paris is opening up and it is fun with all of the activities, and I plan to do what I want to and can.  I have a lot of energy and desire and like the organizations of AAWE and WICE.  They have activities that look funContinue reading “SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS AND NO MEMES FOR THE END OF JUNE 2021”

THE NEW NORMAL

On my mind this Sunday morning, as I sit in my Studio in the heart of Paris, I am reflecting and rambling (and defrosting the refrigerator at the same time haha). Take a look at the photograph featured above.  I have used my very favorite shot as the “featured image photograph”.   What do you see? Continue reading “THE NEW NORMAL”

THE STOCKDALE PARADOX

This is what is on my mind this morning…the “Stockdale Paradox”. Before I start, please know that I am not looking for agreement or argument.  I am thinking out loud in this post.  Contemplating this concept.  NOT A COMPARISON.  As a result, I often ramble.  And sometime, my point gets lost. My grammar get sloppy,Continue reading “THE STOCKDALE PARADOX”

EASTER 2020 – “CLEAN SLATES”

THIS EASTER WEEKEND, I AM working with “a clean slate”.  What do I mean?  Welllll, I am still “in lockdown”.  I cannot go out of the house without an “Attestation” (paper document) or I get fined (if I get stopped by the police).    France is not doing well with its number of cases andContinue reading “EASTER 2020 – “CLEAN SLATES””

OUTSIDE MY DOOR – ONE MILE; 40 MINUTES!

BREAKING NEWS!!!  I got stopped by the police again this morning!  France has tightened restrictions regarding jogging and walking for exercise because people (young and old) were just going about their business, as usual, as far as getting together to exercise, laugh, and enjoy the spring weather in Paris.  Damn!  I have waited to doContinue reading “OUTSIDE MY DOOR – ONE MILE; 40 MINUTES!”

WE ALL HAVE A STORY

Lately, I have seen a lot of posts and gotten a lot of emails wanting me to share my story and it might be used somewhere.  Which story do you want me to share?  I have several stories.  My early years.  Candler Street Grammar School.  My teens.  My family of origin. My ancestors. My auntsContinue reading “WE ALL HAVE A STORY”

ON MY MIND – PARIS, FRANCE – the first weekend in Lockdown
