"The force that propels the human spirit on the clear way forward is the abstract spirit."
Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944)
Paris from the Twenties to World War II, then resistance, fake identities, art theft and a Jewish photographer’s story unfolds over one timeline. Two British officers, one struggling with memory lapses and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, gather evidence of war crimes across a second. Both timelines converge in the turmoil of Berlin in 1945 with painful revelations.

People, stolen art and acts of resistance converge in and around Paris during the German Occupation of World War II. Main characters disappear, some reappear, perhaps in disguise. Minor characters are threads binding four parts of one story together.
Sea Dreams is a collection of poetry prose I began writing not long after my arrival from the southeast England to live on a small acreage just outside Fort Macleod, southern Alberta, Canada in the summer of 2005.
'Yet, there seemed to be a smell of salt in the night air and, as winter came upon me and the first snows fell, I saw shapes and lines as on sandy beaches ...
As the prairie grass blew and rippled in the Chinook wind I imagined this place when once it was ocean and wondered in awe at how small I was.'
