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 could not get warm today
but i do feel better, finally
i worked in the yard for a couple of hours
getting the two flowerbeds by the shed cleaned out
the akebia vine is in full bloom 
and in need of some new support
there was texting from jordan 
and plans made for lunch with katie on friday
i had my get well chicken soup for dinner
and started a new book
