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.

spiderwebs and how once you find one, there are others if you just look close enough, the smell of stew brazing in the oven along with homegrown squash, laundry and the start of packing, skimming the last few chapters of a so-so book, just to see if i was right, a quick walk, which is better than none and private messages on IG
