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.

tuesday || week 45

i called and asked if she wanted to meet for coffee
we sat, catching up
and watched out the big glass windows
as it rained sideways, 
on the way home i actually had to slow down
to dodge branches falling from the cedar trees
i made a pile of firewood inside the garage
just in case. . . 
then i paused and watched,
as the sky turned the most amazing shade of pink
and the wind died down
but i suspect it is just the calm before the storm
