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.

breakfast out with him, an uneventful drive home, mulling over the phase; curiosity is the opposite of depression, rethinking what i thought i knew for sure and knowing i am not ready to pitch my tent, smiling at this pup, who needs to check that his "things" are okay after being gone for a few days, a perfectly ripe avocado and a fresh week ahead, full of possibilities
