So who is the brain behind the website? An excellent abstract of talented artists. Truly impressive family!! Its content grows like true love.


Hey John! It's a collaboration between Julie and me. (And also Typepad, of course, who supplies the tempplate :)) I'm so glad you like it!

Someone has to work on the apocalyptic nature of the poet laureate. Don 2 and I have some more talking to do, that's for sure. He'll need a long straw for that half-empty glass he holds. Come out of that overturned cup, Diogenes, and see the sunrise.

Julie and Monica-- your site is fantastic.

Julie B

Thanks, John! Monica invented the site & I'm honored to have been added to the masthead ;-).

Great to see the Byrne Family 25 years later. Donald, I got the link from Lori Krause at LC 87' reunion meeting (Sept the date). It would be great to see you.
