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.

we were up early and out the door
he fixed things as the inspector pointed them out
while the dog and i walked the marina
(almost three miles according to my phone)
all in all, everything is okay with the boat
we had a late lunch with brandon 
and headed home
i am tired, pouring a glass of wine 
and calling it a day
