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 stopped at the park on my way home 
from the camera store
taking my time to really notice 
and trying to remember all that i had learned
the sun was out and the park was full
later, the dog and i walked around the lake
getting caught in both rain and hail
our trip to Portland is planned
everything coming together so fast
just like it is suppose to. . . 
a lesson learned in faith
and saying yes
