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.

monday || week 49

the rain cleared for a few hours and
the dog and i could not get out there
fast enough . . . 
we both felt better when we returned
to the house, both of us lighter
and in better moods
later i baked the first batch of
Christmas cookies
and he could not understand
why i would not give him one
