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.

gym instructors who play great music •  down pouring rain • afternoon tea and a phone conversation with a sweet friend • understanding fear and just allowing myself to feel it • letting go of frustrations over things i cannot control • successfully unlocking my iMac and all the silliness which seems to go along with doing that, all the while reminding myself to breath and not swear too much
