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?

Geraldine Larrosa As Inez In Zorro

August 13th, 2009 · By Lynn

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 […]

Billy’s Blog – A Void

July 11th, 2009 · By Lynn

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 […]

Hungry Woman In Paris vs. Chez Moi

May 7th, 2009 · By Lynn

Chez Moi: I don’t usually compare books when I do a book review of something I’ve read, but these two books have so many similarities, yet nothing in common, that I just had to write about both of them simultaneously.  (I know it’s an oxymoron, but it fits here perfectly.) I first read Chez Moi […]

Favorite Kahlil Gibran Quotes

April 21st, 2009 · By Lynn

Maya Muses:  I think I have just about every book that was ever written by Kahlil Gibran.  The poetic way he expresses himself about the mundane circumstances of life is anything but to a soul on a quest for more! On prayer: “You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in […]

French Elle – Au Naturel

April 16th, 2009 · By Lynn

Eight European stars are featured in this month’s issue of French Elle!  I think it’s a wonderful idea of finally showing  women without makeup, and more importantly, without any retouching, airbrushing, or photoshopping done to their photos!  No, I’m not talking about photographs circulated by the paparazzi when a star is caught in the most unflattering […]

April 15th, 2009 · By Lynn

97 years ago today, on April 15, 1912, the Titanic struck an iceberg and the rest is history!  For 97 year-old Millvina Dean, she, too, was in the midst of all the chaos that happened that fateful night. Millvina has no recollection of the events that took place for the simple reason, she was only 9 […]

Yes! French Women Do Get Fat!

April 10th, 2009 · By Lynn

Maya Muses: Billy over at Billy’s Lines of Gibberish wrote an interesting piece about why French people manage to stay thin despite all the rich food they eat and it reminded me of an article I wrote two years ago when everyone was talking about the book, French Women Don’t Get Fat by Mireille Guiliano, so I decided […]

Dining With Jim Haynes

March 27th, 2009 · By Lynn

All the food blogs on Paris seem to be talking about the Hidden Kitchen which is one of many underground private restaurants around the world.  The one that most Paris bloggers are writing about has been operating for just under two years by a couple from Seattle, Laura and Braden. The idea is you cook an upscale 10 […]

Sarah’s Key – Tatiana de Rosnay

March 24th, 2009 · By Lynn

When I started reading Tatiana de Rosnay’s book Sarah’s Key, it brought back so many memories of the time when I was working on Steven Spielberg’s, The Shoah Project.  Back in the mid-nineties I was fortunate enough to be a part of a film crew in Paris that video-taped testimonies of Holocaust victims who recounted […]
