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?

Carlos Santana – A Musical/Spiritual Odyssey

April 3rd, 2015 · By Lynn

I finished reading Carlos Santana’s autobiography/memoir, The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light. If you’re a Santana fan (And who isn’t?) this book is a must. The tone is all Carlos Santana and he tells his story the way he plays his guitar. His fingers slide from one note to the next, sometimes he […]

The Dinner by Herman Koch Or Hell’s Kitchen – Bon Appétit!

January 19th, 2014 · By Lynn

First of all, let me say I enjoyed the novel.  The writing was good and the plot somewhat intriguing.  A 309 page story that takes place in a restaurant over dinner.  And not just any restaurant, but a fashionable one to boot.  Of course, I had to buy it if only to see what was […]

The Affair – A Literary Groundhog Day

May 26th, 2013 · By Lynn

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 liked the cover so I picked up the book and read […]

This Silence Is Me Writing

November 21st, 2012 · By Lynn

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 […]

Rolling Ladders

May 18th, 2012 · By Lynn

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 […]

A Week In Normandy For One – In Front Of The Computer For Another

September 7th, 2011 · By Lynn

The week went by so fast!  Patrick went to Cherbourg to see his parents and took a side trip with his mom to Deauville and Honfleur.  I’m not crazy about Deauville (too Rodeo Drive for me) but I love the little seaport town of Honfleur with its colorful buildings and art galleries.  Not to mention […]

The Beauty Of The Southwest

March 13th, 2010 · By Lynn

El Paso:  I love El Paso!  It’s a place where you can breathe because of the vast openness of the desert.  A place where the stars are as big as ripe apples and you feel that you can reach out and pluck one down from the sky.  I see the beauty that surrounds this border […]

“Rude-nella” Opps! Lunella Restaurante New York City

January 24th, 2010 · By Lynn

Okay, so another person came up with the name, “Rude-nella”, describing Lunella’s restaurant in Little Italy, but the name is so appropriate when talking about the place, I just had to use it! We had been walking all day, from the Statue of Liberty to the financial district, over to Ground Zero, Chinatown and finally […]

Cirque du Soleil – Banana Shpeel

November 1st, 2009 · By Lynn

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 […]

The Blood Of Flowers – A Great Read

October 13th, 2009 · By Lynn

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 […]
