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 Baker.  

Thank you so much for stopping by.

"So for me, you release the tension, it opens you up to feelings, feelings connect you to surrender, and suddenly you're hearing with a new ear that moves beyond human interpretation but to spiritual perception, which is infinite and limitless."

a beautiful slow weekend. . . 
pots planted on the deck
bee chasing among the Mountain Bluet 
(unsuccessful, but amazed just the same)
Seane Corn on On Being ~ twice
(because it was that good)
Tandoori Chicken on the deck one night
a gift from Jordan in the mail ~ a new iPhone case
with a photo of Basil 
baby geese at the pond 
trying to give them space
but dang they are cute
emails back and forth with #photoladyfriends
full of goodness and honesty 
moving slow, with awareness and calm
full of gratitude and feeling blessed 

A Break
