I believe that everything starts by paying attention. Life is imperfect and any magical light we can bring into our day is worthy of our gratitude. Laughter and love, joy and celebrations slip into our lives with ease but learning to cope with the deep pain life brings to us is also necessary. I do this best with my camera, chasing down light, zooming in and out and pairing it all with truth. 

I live in Western Washington with my husband of 40+ years, in the home where we raised our three sons. We share that home now with our sweet beagle named Basil. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Last night we gathered with close friends to celebrate friendship and Christmas. We have been at this for at least 25 years; meeting on the soccer fields when our boys all played soccer together. Yes, that is ice cream, with booze in it! A yearly tradition (we were way ahead of our time!) It was a wonderful evening full of laugher, conversation, wine, great food and people I love. 

I am backing away from this space for the next week or so. I hope you have a wonderful holiday with family and friends. 

thanks so much for stopping by today,
