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 wonder at times what it is i am searching for
peace of mind, calmness, contentment, purpose?
it use to be all so clear. . . 
she came today to order seeds to share for our gardens
but as always, our visits go so much deeper
we talk and explore all of the above
and when she leaves i feel more focused
and a bit more brave to take a much needed first step
