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 Guys,
Miss you all, but I'm just burned out. Keeping the Picture This Club going, but right now can't seem to muster the energy to be back on the site. I think of you every day. You know who you are! Hugs, hugs.

I'm very busy trying to fix up the new house, get the garden in order, meet new people through clubs/organizations I've joined upon relocation. As we've opened up from Covid, I've joined the choir, a theater group and the art league. My solo art show will be in September. (Gulp.) Better get busy with that. Set up the art studio yesterday, so now have no excuses to create something.

    Jannypan (Jan) : Best wishes with your art show, Marilyn. When you have you pieces created, then you can write about them!

    damommy: That's a lot on your plate. Good luck.

    Chrissy710 : Hi Marilyn Yes I know the feeling sometimes life just gets overwhelming and some things just need to take a back seat
    Hope your move into your new house is going well
    It is cold and wet here in Ballarat Victoria and we are just coming out of another lockdown 4 th one now so everyone is cold , tired and sick of this Covid in our faces all the time
    It sounds like you are pursuing some new interests especially the theatre group
    I havent done any theatre for 18 months as it has been difficult to make plans on this current environment
    I am still working one or two shifts a week although one is really enough at the moment
    My husband will retire in July so next phase begins for us
    Stay warm and don?t do FS until you have recouped some energy
    Cheers and Hugs Chris

    Pam (respa): Good to hear from you, Marilyn. It sounds like you have plenty to keep you busy. Good luck with the art and upcoming show. Like Jan said, you can share a few on FS and write about them! Take care and hope you are back soon.

    Aussie: I was thinking of you today. We have been inundated by flooding. Lost the aquatic centre (three pools) thirty-one shops, four dead. By now you should have settled in your new home and I hope you are one happy camper. Love, Kay xx

    The Mom/DarleneThomson: Dear Marilyn,
    A lot has been going on in your world. I just came back and was looking for all my old friends. I miss you. Sounds like your life is happy and busy. I hope your art show was a tremendous success.

BeasPeas: Hi Everyone,
Miss you all. I am still working on my new house in Michigan after relocation. Although I'm having fun it's been a lengthy project. The next phase will be to knock a hole in the block wall to install a slider to the garden. When that's completed, I can move in.

In the meantime I'm participating in an art show. The NaPoWriMo and the art show both fall in the month of April. This year, for the first time in a long time, I won't be involved in NaPoWriMo.

Happy Easter and see you soon.

    Debra White: H Marilyn :)
    Good to hear from you!
    Keep on keeping on... you'll be in your new home before you know it!
    Enjoy the art show, hope it goes well for you :) x

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.

    Sugarray77: Hi Marilyn... I am so ready to have you back. I hope you return soon. I took a break too, but FS stayed in my blood. Be blessed!

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,

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
