My name is Marilyn D.F. Boire, under the pen name of BeasPeas (after my mother, named Bea, who also wrote). I have a BFA in sculpture/3-D art. I also paint (oils, watercolor and mixed media). Like most of us, I've been writing since childhood. I consider myself a contemporary artist/writer/poet focusing on daily life. Creatives are observers. We try to express ourselves in words, paint and song.

I'm originally from Massachusetts. I've traveled extensively, lived in several places, and experienced lots of interesting things. 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: 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

Hope to do some reviewing tomorrow.

BeasPeas: Hi all,
As you may know our wonderful 'Picture This' club leader and originator of the club can no longer be our leader. She has moved on to happy things and hoped someone would take her place for continuity. I've decided to do that function. If club members have any suggestions for the club, please e-mail me. Have a great day. Marilyn
