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.

i found myself across the kitchen today, without my walker, i had just walked aways from it! we all headed to the park this afternoon to watch Cannon's first soccer practice. it was so fun, all of us soaking up the fall weather, watching soccer; just like when the boys were playing. i think he is a natural. we headed to Subway (his pick) afterwards and had dinner.
