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.

there now is a clearer path forward to his retirement
i really tried to understand all she was saying
and engage in the questions he was asking, taking in the different options
asking a few questions of my own
later i needed to clear my head and headed out 
to the front flower beds to cut back the last of the roses
all the time giving thanks for our strong marriage
and the great team we make
