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?

Happy Father’s Day!

June 15th, 2014 · By Lynn

Father’s Day is always bittersweet because my dad is no longer here.  It’s been many years since he passed away, but I think about him not just on this day, but often.  Some years ago, an old family friend of my parents mentioned to me how patient my father used to be with us “kids”.  […]

May Roundup

May 31st, 2014 · By Lynn

The best kind of flowers are those that are bought for no reason except that they’re pretty! Patrick and I had so many outings in May, I thought I would have time to write about each one, but it wasn’t to be.  It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words, well I’m glad […]

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!

May 10th, 2014 · By Lynn

Some people think they have the best mom in the world.  I’m one of those lucky people, because I do!  She’s what has kept our family together all these years after my father passed away.  I wrote about her life in a post on Mother’s Day 2010. Mom working at Dravo’s shipyard. I wrote about […]

Kids Say The Funniest Things!

March 14th, 2014 · By Lynn

I laughed so hard listening to these first two videos, I had to share!  They’re so funny!  The first one is about an 8 year-old Irish girl, Becky, who wants to demolish her school. The second is by a 4 year-old little boy who calls 911 to ask for help with his math homework. Et […]

The Epiphany Or All Kings Day!

January 6th, 2014 · By Lynn

Our Christmas Tree before…. I always leave my Christmas tree up until the Epiphany, it’s a tradition that my family has had for years.  This year for some reason (I think because Patrick was ill and it wasn’t exactly the best of Holiday Seasons) I took the tree down right after New Year’s Day.  Then, […]

From Dust To Dust

September 30th, 2013 · By Lynn

Maya Muses:  I’ve been a bit under the weather with a sore throat and then a bad cold after that!  I really haven’t been doing much except sleep and read and then sleep some more.  Just recently, I’ve felt better and have gone on Facebook to see what family and friends have been up to […]

Happy 91st Birthday, Mom!!!

August 10th, 2013 · By Lynn

One of several cakes mom’s had for her birthday! It doesn’t seem like it was already a year ago we were celebrating my mother’s 90th birthday with family and friends who had flown in from all over to celebrate.  Even the mariachi band we hired had to come in from Chicago. (There isn’t a mariachi […]

Mom and I having breakfast at Barnes & Noble. Green tea and cinnamon scones. It was difficult saying goodbye to my mom after spending a month and a half with her.  Call me lucky because that truly is what I am to have spent that time with her.  Each morning I would wake up and […]

El Paso High School Basketball Players In A Game Of Life And Everybody Wins!

February 16th, 2013 · By Lynn

When you hear about all the violence in schools nowadays, you wonder where this world is headed.  At least, I do.  You can’t turn on the news and not hear about teen gangs, or school shootings, or a suicide due to someone being bullied until a poor kid takes his/her own life. Well this isn’t […]

Happy New Year 2013!!!

January 4th, 2013 · By Lynn

2012 went out beautifully and 2013 came in just as lovely. Patrick and I declined invitations to ring in the new year among friends. Instead we opted to stay home and have a quiet dinner just the two of us. To work up an appetite, we walked around le Bon Marché and admired the windows […]
