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 49

gratitude for time to be with my thoughts and working through them without anger, for the sound of rain on the roof, for homemade split pea soup and how it reminds me of my mom, for the dog in my lap along with a good book and a cup of tea, and for a long phone conversation with a friend this afternoon and her ability to help me see things more clearly and how she makes me laugh. . .
