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.

315/365 || gratitudes
for a car that gets me from here to there, and cell phones for delivering good news • for kindness and empathy from those who care about me • for the dog, who wags and wags his tail when i walk in the door and for the return of calmness, which i have not felt for a few weeks now. . .
