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 worked most of the day in the garden
spreading compost and weeding between the beds 
i planted Walla Walls sweet onions, poking my figers into the dirt
to make room for their roots and thought about how this garden 
feels so right to me, how it is so much a part of who i am 
later we went to dinner with close friends
i will sleep good tonight
