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 took the dog to get his nails cut today
and afterwards treated him to doggy frozen yogurt
i cleaned all the birdbaths and filled the hummingbird feeders
later he texted me to tell me there were two misspelled words in my blog post today
i thought dang! why can't i see them!!
and then he wrote; beautiful words, 
I'm continually amazed how you write so emotionally descriptively 
and i relaxed, he is on his way home. . .
