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.

tuesday || week 47

the frost was gone this morning and
before the rain started
i made good on my promise and took the dog for a long walk
it was still cold enough for a hat and gloves
she called when i got home and we swapped
Thanksgiving stories, her with her new grand baby! 
later i finished up the decorating
and even put the boxes away
tonight a new book is waiting
and maybe a tiny glass of wine. . .
