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.

it was a quiet day
i started packing for this weekend
did some writing and read a bit
the dog did not even get a walk
and not because it rained so hard
but because it was so cold
there was a long talk with Brandon 
and a message from Jordan that Katie left
he will be really lonely for a bit now
