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 have been giving a lot of thought today
about friendship
how one little act can rip the rug
right out from under me
how feeling important and needed
can make me do things i am not proud of
again wondering,
when that wise old woman
is going to show up
and stay put. . .
