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.

things change

We headed into Seattle a couple of days ago to meet Jordan for a few hours. We had plans to go to out to dinner afterwards, to a restaurant I have been wanting to try, but things change. Things change because of memories and old stomping grounds and wondering if the pizza at Northlake Tavern is as good as it was some 35+ years ago when Gary was in grad school. It was.

On the way home we pulled into Gas Works Park to catch the sunset. 

“The redness had seeped from the day and night was arranging herself around us. Cooling things down, staining and dyeing the evening purple and blue black.”
