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

HERE’S WHAT IS ON MY MIND……  Go grab a cup of coffee, if you want to.  I have a few things that I want to say.  Actually, I am speaking to myself as I write this as well as to all of my readers.  First off, I want to thank all of you for readingContinue reading “ON MY MIND – PARIS, FRANCE – the first weekend in Lockdown”

JUST SAYIN…….

This has been a wonderful week!  I have gotten an excellent Vet who has helped Missy, and I have gotten a dentist in the neighborhood who cleaned my teeth. This is his waiting room.  He may or may not be a keeper.  I like his taste in art. And, finally, I got a housekeeper, whoContinue reading “JUST SAYIN…….”

A WORD OF EXPLANATION…..

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. –  Carl Jung After my last post, I had several people who care about me ask if I were all right?  I think they were taking my post literally.  No, it is/was metaphorical. Continue reading “A WORD OF EXPLANATION…..”

“Pick Yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again…..”

Here’s to those who still believe, here’s to the losers, bless them all.  Here’s to the winners all of us can be!  Thank you, Frank Sinatra.  What beautiful music you made for all of us. This is Day 17.  So, I have been here a little over two weeks.  And, a LOT has happened sinceContinue reading ““Pick Yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again…..””

HAPPY TWENTIES (2020)!

Earlier in Jayspeak, I wrote about “decades” and added a photograph that was taken during the year 1937, 1947, 1957 and so forth during the years that I was born and then turned 10, 20, 30, and so forth, ending with the year that I turned 80.  Well, this is a different kind of “decade. Continue reading “HAPPY TWENTIES (2020)!”
