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.

“Twenty-five, he was. Twenty-five tomorrow. Some years the snow had melted for his birthday, but not this year, and so it had been a long winter full of cows.” 
― Jane Smiley

our oldest son turned 36 a few days ago . . .  
we took him to lunch to celebrate and ran into Santa and his wife,
everyone in the tiny restaurant knew them. 

"All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much."
 – George Harrison
