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.

friday || week 47

they arrive in pairs and
leave in pairs
two last night, two this morning
and two not until tomorrow
until then, i will hold on to their goodness, 
bask in their laughter and their company
but i told them all i was done cooking. . . 

saturday || week 47

thursday || thanksgiving
