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.

we woke to rain and the house was chilly. i had to use my little grabber thing to put on a pair of socks! a dear friend came by for a few hours; in a few days they leave for the winter and head to Arizona, and i will miss her. we chatted and laughed and promised to keep in touch.
