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.

all five of us together, talking and catching up, laughing so hard, fresh blood orange margaritas, making dinner together, more laugher, bunnies and quail and doves and lizards right in the back yard, a walk by myself at sunset, a sleep over with Kathy, she and i sharing a bed, just like in the olden days, more laugher, friendship, feeling so blessed. . .
