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.

the vet was nice enough to just talk to me
and i did not have to take him in
he is just about his old self tonight
the sun was out and we walked around the pond
where i thought i was lucky to come across a posing frog
he just sat there and looked at  me, 
finally it dawned on me that he was dead, 
poor little guy
