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 sprinkle of salted caramel sugar on my morning latte, a dog who felt better and better as the day wore on, a walk between the rain showers, clouds and fog hanging low all day, appointments made, friends who check up on me, time to seriously think about why and how come and left over stew for dinner
