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 48

it never got light today and all day long i kept thinking
it was evening. . . 
the dog and i bundled up, but did not last long
as the rain was relentless
i made a huge batch of
my favorite lentil soup, 
some of it for tomorrow's meet-up
( which i am so excited about)
and some for me, to eat on all week
all day long i have been squelching
those feelings . . .  
and thinking of ways i can take care of me
