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.

I saw her signs ~  "plants for sale" and on a whim, I followed them. 

I left with tiny starts of plants, some came with a story, some she could not remember the names of. Most of them were all potted up, but some she just dug up as we walked through her yard, saying to me. . . "Oh, you need a piece of this." Twenty years later, some have flourished in my garden, some have died.  Today that tiny start of Wood Spurge fills one of the banks in our yard, shadows playing on them throughout the spring and summer.  I am so glad I stopped.
