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.

sleeping in, laughter, a long walk with him and the dog, friendly bikers and other dog walkers, dancing leaves, afternoon chai, meatloaf for dinner with potatoes from the garden, listening to the rain through the open kitchen window, him honking the horn as he pulled out of the driveway heading for the east side
