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.

sunday || week 46

there was oatmeal with apples for breakfast
and chili for dinner
along with delicate squash biscuits
i have decided that a sink full of hot sudsy water
does both my body and my mental state good
the bird feeders were filled
and the last of the outdoor furniture
put away, and the deck blown off
he fixed the sink and the new
thermostat, which evidently he had installed wrong

it was a mundane sunday for which i am ever so grateful . . .
