Fantasy has been my lifelong companion. Within this site I have finally found a way to write some of my fantasy stories down. They are tales for children and adults alike. I take delight in letting my musings run without a leash. I am a very grown up person with a big child within me, so that is what you will find in my stories. I also have added illustrations and will add more as time goes by.

Collection of small photos


The photo stories that I will show you are mostly from the beautiful island that we call "Our Paradise", which is Anna Maria Island off the coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. I have lived here a long time now, but only recently have I discovered to use the camera as my means to capture the beauty of this gem.

All of the photographs can be viewed as slideshows within their individual categories. You can find the links in the top and bottom navigation on all the photo pages.

My Visual Art

Art is what I need most in my life, the process of creating. It does not matter what the creating is, as long as I can let my thoughts grow with any medium that is at hand. Over time I have created many things and I will continue to do so. Age is not a limit to creativity, on the contrary, the ability grows because the foundation is so strong after so many years of acquiring skills.
