It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

February 28th, 2009 · By Lynn

Maya Muses: I was on the phone with a friend from Paris who asked me when we were planning on going back, (Patrick and I go back and forth every year to Paris) and I told her this year I didn’t know.  “I have several doctor appointments scheduled,” I said…..and then we got to talking […]

February 26th, 2009 · By Lynn

Maya Muses:  If you missed part I, these will bring a smile to your face.  If you happen to be an editor,   then some of these will probably make you cringe!

Rodeo Roundup Parisian Style!

February 25th, 2009 · By Lynn

Maya Muses:  Horses running wild in the streets of Paris….not really.  Just one who felt it was time to head to greener pastures rather than meander in the streets of a gray Parisian winter!

Irène Némirovsky’s Suite Française

February 25th, 2009 · By Lynn

When I first arrived in Paris back in 1971 one of the things that surprised me most was how the French continuously spoke about WWII as though it had happened yesterday. Not just the older generation, but my generation. Being a “Baby Boomer” World War II was something I read about in my history books […]

Slumdog Millionaire Wins Best Picture But Loses Respect

February 23rd, 2009 · By Lynn

For all of you Slumdog fans, don’t get on my case just because I’m not on the bandwagon with everyone else!  Yesterday Patrick and I went to see Slumdog Millionaire.  After reading all the wonderful things written about this film, I was confident that we would not be disappointed, and disappointed we weren’t, but I can’t […]

More Nails In Casey Anthony’s Coffin

February 20th, 2009 · By Lynn

If most of the evidence, and her behavior, didn’t already point to Casey Anthony killing her daughter Caylee, then reading her diary will convince the final 1% who are having any doubts, that she’s the culprit! It doesn’t matter whether her fingerprints are or aren’t on the duct tape, because it’s just one detail among […]

Hair Today Gone Tomorrow!

February 18th, 2009 · By Lynn

If there was one thing I had a lot of while growing up, it was hair!  So much of it, that I was constantly getting it thinned out when I was young, but the more I thinned it out, the more it just seemed to grow back in!  I know, you can say the same thing about […]

February 17th, 2009 · By Lynn
