My new photo is a "selfie" and my name is Marilyn D.F. Boire, under the pen name of BeasPeas (after my mother, named Bea, who also wrote). I'm an artist and writer who loves to sing. My art is contemporary. Although I like to paint in oils and watercolor, my favorite medium is 3D, making constructs and assemblage/collage.

So far I've lived in 6 states, MA, NY, TN, CA, WI, and now MI. In the '60s I traveled the world as an airline stewardess for PanAm. I have two wonderful kids, a son and daughter. I'm an animal-rights advocate and, therefore, a vegetarian. Thank you for reading. Marilyn

BeasPeas: Hi Everyone. It's me again. I've been off FanStory for a couple of months trying to relocate, but it's been slow and difficult. By mid-September I should be back to read and review your terrific work.

I've found a house in Michigan, not my fave, but it will have to do for now. At least I'll be in my target area to find something I REALLY like.

Stay safe and thank you to those who have contacted me. I miss all of you.

BeasPeas: Hi Everyone,
I'm still dealing with this moving thing. Very stressful. Therefore, I'm not on Fanstory much right now. As soon as everything returns to normal will devote time to reading your great writing.

Regarding the Picture This club, I will post images throughout the moving process for members to share. Pardon me for sparse reviewing right now.
Hugs to all,

A note to let you know that I'm relocating to Michigan and will be on/off FanStory until things straighten out. Very busy right now. My reading, reviewing will be limited. Hugs,

BeasPeas: The three Wisconsin Master Chorale concerts went well. Really a great time. We've been invited to sing on stage at a local theater next weekend. Then the Chorale will have a break until January when we start practice for the spring concert. Whew! Still lots of music for Christmas choir, but all enjoyable. Maybe a little time for reading and reviewing on FanStory. Marilyn

BeasPeas: Hi everyone,
I've been a little busy lately and not on the site every day. I've been pet sitting my grandpets, so I'm running back and forth a lot to their house. They're so cute.
Hope to do some reviewing tomorrow.
