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.

INTRICATE

“A dead hydrangea is as intricate and lovely as one in bloom. Bleak sky is as seductive as sunshine, miniature orange trees without blossom or fruit are not defective; they are that.”

~ Toni Morrison, Tar Baby 

A happened upon dried up hydrangea leaf in the birdbath, made for some fun one afternoon. It made me wonder how many times in life I walk right by such beauty; grateful that on this day I noticed. 

i hope you take time to notice the little things today. 
have a wonderful weekend,
