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?

April in Paris

April 1st, 2012 · 4 Comments


Patrick and I went for a walk today, the sun was shining and not a cloud in the sky!  Beautiful!  We walked a nice little 5.5 miles (almost 9 km) and then sat at a sidewalk café and just enjoyed the late afternoon sunshine with a glass of wine.  What I love about Paris is that you can walk and walk and not even realize how far you’ve walked because of things to see and do.  Thanks to a great website that my cousin Debi told me about, I can now calculate how far we’ve gone.


When Deb and Julie were here we spent one afternoon walking up to Montmartre and ended up walking for over 8.8 miles (over 14 km).  Climbing up a steep hill is not the same as walking on a flat surface and this website, Map My Fitness, takes that into account.  I love it.

Well, on this first day of April my mom said she had dyed her hair blue.  “Yeah, right mom!”  I mean what 89 year old mother goes and dyes her hair blue, right?  I wanted to see proof otherwise, April Fools!!!  Well here’s mom in all her glory!!!


Maya Muses:  She’s always wanted to put blue highlights in her hair, so I thought, “Hmm, maybe she did dye her hair.”  Well this is how it really turned out!  I think it looks pretty good if you ask me!  “You go, mom!!!”  (89 years young!!!)

    All she needs is leather and a motorcycle and you’ve got yourself a hip mom.

    She is! I have a photo of her on a motorcycle for her 80th birthday! She didn’t have on leather, but she had on jeans. (I’ll look for the photo and post it here!)
