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.

i have decided to jump in with both feet
give it a while, embrace it, and see what happens
i have come to understand that the give and take 
between those with like minds, is so important
on another note.... 
we have been calling Basil, Mr. B all day
in honor of his breed winning the Westminster!
