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.

today i cleaned up another flower bed
then moved to the garden beds
where i noticed the dirt is full of worms
and the rhubarb is coming up
there are forget-me-nots everywhere
and i removed them from the vegetable beds
making room for fresh compost and seeds
maybe we can get the compost this weekend
if the weather holds, i told  him tonight on the phone
i can't wait. . .
