I was in a bookstore about a month ago and picked up The Affair by Colette Freedman. I don’t know if it was the pink coat on the cover that caught my eye or the winter tree in the foreground. In any case, I picked the book up. The blurb in the back didn’t interest […]

There are so many different things I want to post on my blog, but no time to write them! It’s terrible! For example, I’ve been to a number of good (and not so good) restaurants here in Paris that I would love to talk about, there are quite a few books I’ve read that I […]

A few years ago I won a contest online for having the best library out of all the contestants and I didn’t even need a rolling ladder at the time. Now I have the library I’ve always dreamed of having and with our 9 foot ceilings, I can definitely use a rolling ladder, but for […]

The one time I was fortunate enough to see the Cirque du Soleil, it was their show Alegría, which means joy or happiness in Spanish. A very appropriate name indeed!
If you’ve ever been to the Cirque du Soleil, then you know it’s more than just a show and nothing like you’ve ever seen! Their troups […]

Have you ever wondered what makes you pick up one book and pass by another? Is it the cover of the book - or the title that catches your eye? Do you read what others are saying about the book on the back, or what the story is about on the the jacket; or do […]

After all my drama(!)….. on a lighter note, it’s good to have Geraldine back in France! Yes she’s busy rehearsing, looking for an apartment, and catching up with a lot of our old friends, but I’m sure all you Geraldine Larrosa fans already know that she’ll be playing the role of Inez in the musical comedy […]

As I commented on Billy’s blog (Billy’s Lines of Gibberish) I’m always learning new and interesting facts from many of the posts that he writes. His latest post happens to be about the French writer, Georges Perec who wrote a 300 page novel back in 1969 called La Disparition which was translated into English as […]
