We Have Moved and are Settling in for the Duration ... Please forgive the state of these pages as I seek to update

 Valentine's Day, 2023 brought us home to independent, cooperative living for the over 55 crowd. After several months of renovations and with continued downsizing we are delighted with our small but suitable home here on River Parkway in Minneapolis. I am hoping to update and revise these pages, including my pages on writing and Michael's creative work, as time allows. For now, a scroll here and there and everywhere will give you glimpses of where we are and where we've been.

Interior Monologue Series

The INTERIOR MONOLOGUE series reflects my inner dialogue or my conversations with myself. The work is inspired by the surroundings, furnishings, music and atmosphere in which I find myself creating, reflecting or simply "being" in a state of physical, emotional and spiritual awareness. The work is intuitive and often abstract though depicting recognizable representations of objects or structures.
