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.

What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.
~ Mother Teresa

they were all home for their dad's birthday. 
everyone brought him candy and we made tamales
for dinner, along with this vegan chocolate cake
i made them all help roll the tamales
and line up outside to take a photo.
it makes me feel good to think i still can get them
to listen to me at times and do what i ask. 
 

he gets nervous when the house is full of people, 
even his people, and their dogs. . .  

I say, thirteen is too many dogs for good mental health. Five is pretty much the limit. More than five dogs and you forfeit your right to call yourself entirely sane. Even if the dogs are small.

happy valentines day to this old man
and to all of you! 
hope your day is full of love.
