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.

wednesday || week 48

we lost power around 3:00 am
after the wind woke the dog up
it is always surprising what i can't do
when we have no power, and it is so dark
the dog and i walked the neighborhood
and drove into town, where there was flooding
and downed trees, and no school
later we hunkered down and he slept
while i read. . . 
i was just about to make a fire
when i heard the humming of electricity come
through the house around 5:00 pm
