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.

a sunrise which took my breath away, morning coffee and tea in our pajamas on the deck, the sea right before us, oatmeal with apples and muffins and bacon, opening myself up to new ideas without judgement or hesitation, knowing i am in good hands and loved, so much laughter and tears and woman who are willing to share their amazing skills, later cooking for them, a fancy cocktail and falling into bed spent and heartFULL. . . 
oh, and learning to knit!
